Analyse der Konjunkturprogramme zur Bewältigung der Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise aus Umweltsicht

Expertise für das WBGU-Hauptgutachten "Welt im Wandel: Gesellschaftsvertrag für eine Große Transformation"
This brief expert report analyses the extent to which the economic stimulus packages launched in 2009 have the potential to drive forward a fundamental and sustainable transformation of the economy or to create new "path dependencies", i.e. to encourage businesses to remain in traditional industries or production methods that have been identified as unsustainable. For these purposes, this study analyses the economic stimulus packages of Germany, Great Britain, South Korea and the USA and briefly presents the programmes of China and Japan. Only initial estimates can be made in the context of this study, assuming that every euro or dollar spent in a given area has a similar environmental impact.Read more

Evaluation of the Costs and Benefits of the EIA Directive

November 2006 to April 2007
The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Directive entered into force in 1985. Over its more than 20 year long existence, numerous projects in the EU Member States have been subject to the EIA procedure. To what extent the benefits of the EIA Directive outweigh its costs is largely unknown. Up to now, there has been no systematic evaluation of the costs and benefits of the EU’s EIA legislation and its implementation in the Member States. The projects aims therefore at calculating and systematically evaluating  the costs and benefits of the EIA Directive. Read more
