Internalization of External Costs in Lithuania and Poland
The paper reviews and compares external costs of atmospheric pollution and pollution taxes in Lithuania and Poland and assesses the level of external costs internalization and their impact on atmospheric emissions of classical pollutants in both countries. The analysis of trends of atmospheric pollution by classical pollutants in Lithuania and Poland is presented and policy recommendations based on the main findings of the analysis conducted were developed.
