I dette papir gives en oversigt over dele af den omfattende litteratur om regulering af forurening under asymmetrisk information - både punkt og ikke-punkt forurening gennemgås. Primær målgruppe for papiret er økonomer med kendskab til informationsøkonomi, men med begrænset kendskab til miljøøkonomi. Desuden skitseres kort hvilke incitamentmekanismer, der vil blive forsøgt tilpasset en analyse af regulering af fornybare naturlige ressourcer under asymmetrisk information. Papiret har en tæt kobling til teori om asymmetrisk information.
