This edition of the Southeast Asian Economic Outlook examines the macroeconomic situation, policies and medium-term growth prospects for countries in the region; structural challenges; green growth strategies, policies and institutions; and environmental taxes. It finds that growth for the region will moderate in the near term but solid growth performance will continue until 2016. To sustain this favourable outlook, countries need to meet considerable structural challenges. Green growth offers an alternative growth strategy in the long term.

Environmental tax instruments (ETIs) have become the key tools for achieving environmental objectives in the OECD and many non-OECD economies. As market based instruments (MBI) that make use of price signals and incentives, ETIs can more closely achieve environmental goals at a lower cost to society than older command and control (CC) instruments such as quotas and mandates.
