PTE Description Details:
Market-based instruments (MBIs) are proving to be a useful addition to existing natural resource
management tools.  
MBIs use trading mechanisms, auctions and price signals to change behaviour to benefit the
Rather than prescribing activities or technology use, MBIs have the potential to allow more 
flexibility in how an outcome is achieved.
Round One of the National MBI Pilot Program focused on individual policy mechanisms that could
be employed in natural resource and environmental management. 
Total funding allocated for the first round of pilots was $5 million, with second round funding
of up to $5 million announced on 2nd December 2005.
Round Two of the Program will continue to investigate innovations in MBIs and address remaining
knowledge gaps. 
Importantly it will build on the successes of Round One by focusing on moving MBIs from trial 
to implementation stage. 
This could involve pilots that examine how different policy mechanisms fit together (MBIs, 
legislation, education etc.) and applications to different landscape or environmental problems 
where this changes the design or application of MBIs. 
The purpose of these pilots is to provide a comprehensive response to complex natural resource 
management and environmental issues.
Pilots may be new discrete projects, or proposals developed from Round One pilots, however they
must focus on National Action Plan regions. 
Project teams should aim to build capacity to implement MBIs through, for example, field-based
pilots or 'experimental economics' techniques.  
Knowledge arising from the pilot should be relevant to all Australian jurisdictions and able to
be used to enhance the delivery of future environmental and natural resource management programs.
