V souvislosti s probíhajícím přechodem k cirkulární ekonomice se diskutují i nástroje, jejichž prostřednictvím by obce mohly podpořit své občany v předcházení vzniku odpadu, aktivním snižování produkce směsného komunálního odpadu a vyšším třídění využitelných složek. Do středu pozornosti se proto dostává chování člověka a jeho rozhodování o tom, co...
Article
Nowadays, dealing with organic waste (or biowaste) remains a global phenomenon. Especially developing countries worldwide generate more than 50 percent organicwaste. In the European Union (EU) with a share of 34%, biowaste is a dominantfraction of the municipal waste (EEA, 2020). Therefore, separate collection at source and environmentally sound tr...
Article
Nowadays, the European municipal waste management policy based on the circular economy paradigm demands the closing of material and financial loops at all territorial levels of public administration. The effective planning of treatment capacities (especially sorting plants, recycling, and energy recovery facilities) and municipal waste management p...
Article
Increasing pressure of the European Union on diverting municipal waste from landfills requires an active role of households and commands a radical change of their behavior. Knowledge of behavioral patterns enables an effective design of municipal waste management systems. Based on several factors influencing environmental behavior, this paper aims...

Municipal solid waste generation has been analyzed in broad range of studies but most of the studies neglect the spatial aspect of analyzed datasets. This paper’s aim is to explore spatial dependency in relations between municipal solid waste generation and socio-demographic aspects. The results obtained using geographically weighted regression are...
Article
To accelerate the transition to a circular economy European member states have applied a broad range of policy instruments. Based on recycling rates and public participation in recycling efforts the Czech Republic would also appear to be on the way to a circular economy. However, the environmental effect of policy instruments (e.g. promotion and ed...

This paper examines the role of the competition on the waste-collection market. Based on the case study of the Czech Republic, we evaluate the influence of competition intensity on supply side of the market on efficiency of waste-collection services. The rate of competition was approximated by the number of submitted bids to public tenders and effi...
Conference Paper
To accelerate the transition to a circular economy, the European member states apply a broad range of policy instruments. Based on recycling rates and public participation on recycling efforts, the Czech Republic seems to be a country that is on the regular way to a circular economy. However, the environmental effect of policy instruments (e.g. P&E...

The present transboundary study of ecosystem services (ES) focusses on a section of the Eastern Ore Mountains, a rural low mountain range in Germany and the Czech Republic. Aims of the study were to quantify five biotope types typical for the region (raised bogs, mountain meadows, clearance cairns, near-natural mountain forests, and near-natural st...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Most analyses dealing with the costs of the municipal waste management system focus on competition, ownership, quality of the service, economies of scale and density, or intermunicipal cooperation. Only a few of them consider system parameters that are under direct control of municipal representatives on a daily basis – e.g. pickup frequency, numbe...
Chapter
In den mittel- und osteuropäischen Ländern mit ehemals sozialistischem Gesellschafts- und Wirtschaftssystem vollzieht sich seit Ende der 1980er Jahre ein epochaler Strukturwandel, der gesamtgesellschaftlich, regional und sektoral sehr unterschiedlich ausgeprägten Entwicklungspfaden folgt. Daraus ergeben sich die Grundgedanken der IÖR-Schrift, nämli...

Article
According to the European regulation regarding waste management (which is reflected in the increasing pressure on municipal waste separation and recycling) the choice of suitable political instruments seems to be crucial. Based on scientific research, the variable charges are considered as an effective choice for the regulation. Unfortunately, scie...

The economic valuation of environmental resources is considered to be an important theoretical tool for decision-making on the allocation of scarce natural resources. However, its practical (political) use is often questioned. Within the paper the usefulness of the widely used contingent valuation method for local tourism strategies is defended. Th...

Anotace Problematika využití a účinnosti ekonomických nástrojů politiky ochrany životního prostředí byla v teoretické rovině diskutována již od 60. let 20. století. Za jejich hlavní výhodu oproti nástrojům regulační povahy byla považována zejména statická efektivnost (Baumol, 1972) vedoucí k minimalizaci nákladů, dynamická efektivnost chápaná jako...

Project
To evaluate the decomposition of littering reflecting different locations (e.g. pathways, squares, streets, parks etc.), to propose measures preventing littering behavior and to recommend an efficient model of sharing cleaning costs between producers.
Project
The aim of the project is to develop expertise and infrastructure for the research and application of SMART City concept, SMART Region and SMART Community addressing the long-term social needs of the population, improving the quality of life and competitiveness in the Usti nad Labem Region. The project consists of four research intents: • SMART Public Administration • SMART Public Services and Infrastructure • SMART Quality of Life and the Environment • SMART People SMART Public Administration is focused on Public Participation and Smart City Management – Smart regulations (participatory decision making, behavioral approaches to public administration, using new technologies, analytical support, open data etc.) SMART Public Services and Infrastructure is focused on demand approach to providing public services aimed at increasing the efficiency, quality, and public participation. There are several areas involved: Smart Energy, Water Management, Resource Management, and Smart Mobility and Transportation. SMART Quality of Life - an environment is focused on creating tools for adapting climate change, green infrastructure and the relationship between nature and society. Research intent SMART People is focused on the quality of public space, image of the city and the region and Smart education.
Project
Main goal of the project is to evaluate how the demographic change, behavioral aspects (especially so called 'crowding out effect'), and municipal waste cost structure influence the effectiveness of different charging schemes in the Czech Republic.
