POLICYMIX: Assessing the role of economic instruments in policy mixes for biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services provision (2010 - 2013)

POLICYMIX aims to contribute to achieving the EU’s goals of reversing trends in biodiversity loss beyond 2010 through the use of cost-effective and incentive-compatible economic instruments. POLICYMIX focuses on the role of economic instruments in a mix of operational conservation policy instruments. It is a collaborative project between research institutes in Europe and Latin America, under the EU’s 7th Framework Programme for RTD.  IVM’s main role in this project is to assess the benefits and costs of using economic instruments for biodiversity.
