dc.descriptionThis chapter reflects on the influence that the economic crisis of 2007-2008 had in Spain's environmental policy by looking at policy change in four areas: climate change, renewable energy, energy efficiency and biodiversity. It is part of a book where similar analysis for other European countries is undertaken. The Spanish case is unique due to its inherent structural problems.en_US
dc.description.abstractThe economic crisis has had a profound effect upon Spanish environmental policy. The government abandoned its once praised support schemes and instead adopted measures that penalise the development of renewable energy. This chapter provides an in-depth investigation of environmental policy implementation since the crisis, focusing on renewables, biodiversity, energy efficiency, and climate change. These four policy areas are compared in order to outline differences in policy approaches and the possibility of differentiated influential factors for policy change. The chapter identifies structural barriers as the main cause of recent policy reversals. Political preferences and decentralisation of the Spanish government system emerge as central explanatory variables for environmental policy implementation and change. The chapter also looks ahead into the possible future development of environmental policy in Spain. Governmental instability may mitigate against future investment, exacerbating existing problems of poor environmental policy integration, and a lack of civil society engagement with the environment.en_US
