Economic instruments and financing of environmental protection expenditure

The system of environmentally related taxes and charges that is applied in the Republic of Moldova has not changed since 2005. Market-based instruments (such as the trading of emission permits) are not applied. A scheme for the promotion of renewable energy sources is under development. There is no legal framework yet for public sector green procurement or for eco-labelling. There is no information on the use of explicit subsidies (indicated as such in the State budget) aimed directly at the promotion of environmental protection.
