Command-and-Control Strategies

Every jurisdiction in the world makes use of direct command-and-control regulations, hence this section does not attempt to provide a complete list of links. By using the link to environmental agencies of the world on the Policy Homepage you can pick a country and find their regulations. If you find one that is particularly interesting (good or bad) please e-mail me. The links here illustrate technology restrictions (BC), and effluent restrictions and uniform resource use limits (Ontario). The link to Latin America is an interesting example of how conventional regulation is being re-thought in the light of environmental economics.
