RFF research on policy includes the evaluation of command-and-control and incentive-based policy instruments, the comparative analyses of different regulatory strategies in a variety of settings, and the performance of alternative policy instruments like voluntary measures. The fourteen books in this collection range from theoretical works on the definition and governance of common property to applied studies on the enforcement of pollution control laws.
The RFF Library Collection brings back landmark books published by Resources for the Future throughout its nearly 60-year history as the pre-eminent research institution devoted exclusively to environmental issues.
