However, implementation has been slow in practice, partly due to low acceptability that comes from the same concerns as in Europe, and partly due to weak institutional arrangements for the reform. The slow progress in the revenue side turns our eyes on expenditure side: how East Asian nations have increased environmental-related expenditures, and how far they have greened sectorial expenditures. This lifecycle assessment of the fiscal reform, coupled with the assessment of the institutional arrangement constitutes the features of this book.The book helps to provide overall picture of green fiscal reform and carbon-energy tax reform in the East Asian region.

The region has a variety of countries, from lowest income to high-income nations. Nations have different interests in substance and barriers for reform. This book covers recent development of environmental fiscal reform and carbon-energy taxation in wider nations in the region, including South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and Japan. In addition, the books holistic view helps to understand why a specific nation has interest and concern on some aspects of the reforms.
