Economic instruments and environmental funds

The first Environmental Performance Review (EPR) of Ukraine described the system of economic instruments available for environmental purposes. This included taxes on the extraction and special use of natural resources, user charges for a number of services, emissions charges (for air emissions, discharges into water and waste disposal) and sanctions for environmental pollution, and excises and customs duties on environmentally harmful products such as fuels and cars. This overall framework has remained basically unchanged in the period under review.
