Hide / Show Abstract

This publication is a milestone in the analysis of the distributional impacts of environmental policy.  It builds upon existing literature to simultaneously examine disparities in the distribution of environmental impacts and in the distribution of financial effects among households. It provides a conceptual framework for facilitating understanding of the disparities in impacts, reviews empirical evidence through a number of case studies, and analyses policy implications.
