Shouro Dasgupta (Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici); Enrica De Cian (Fondazione Eni Enrico Mattei, Centro Euro-Mediterraneo sui Cambiamenti Climatici)

JEL n.: O10, Q5, Q00, P16
Keywords: Institutions, Environmental Performance, Environmental Policy, Investments


This paper reviews the empirical literature on institutions, environmental policy, environmental outcomes, and investments.  In this FEEM Working Paper, FEEM researchers S. Dasgupta and E. De Cian argue that new research on these topics can provide important insights to the broader field of sustainability transition and sustainable development.
"The empirical literature on institutions and the environment is broad, but out-of-date. Updating this literature by analyzing the impact of institutions on green investments and climate policy stringency is ripe for investigation."
