abstract
Tradable permits are often used as a policy toolinstrument to control market supply or environmental effectsimpacts. Examples of policies based on tradable permits can be foundAlso within the Flemish livestock production sector, examples of policies based on tradable permits can be found, e.g. for example, in the dairy and manure policy: the dairy production is controlled by the imposition of dairy quotas;, the manure policy is based on a set of three systems of tradable permits. This dissertation, for the first time, places for the first time the different policy measures within under the manure policy in thewithin a framework of tradable permits. It is shown demonstrated that fertilization fertilisation standards are constitute an application of tradable concentration permits. This new framework offers new insights on into the manure policy, as it allows topermits analysis of analyse the impact of individual measures, and but at the same time to takeprovides a global view on of the manure policy itself. Based on these new findings the relevance of keeping retaining NPR’s as a policy tool is discussed, and an ex-ante assessment of the new manure policy is made.
