Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution
Network of Experts on Benefits and Economic Instruments, NEBEI


The Network of Experts on Benefits and Economic Issues (NEBEI) was formed in 2000 with the aim to develop further the economic work carried out by the former Task Force on Economic Aspects of Abatement Strategies and to enable economic considerations to be taken into account in the development and review of Protocols to the Convention. NEBEI meets only on the occasion of planned workshops and includes not only economists but also representatives from other specialist groups. It is currently led by the United Kingdom and Norway.

The last workshop was held on 6-7 April 2006 in Catania, Italy, on the economic impacts of air pollution on cultural heritage, jointly with the Working Group on Effects' ICP Materials.
