OECD Environmental Performance Reviews provide independent assessments of countries’ progress towards their environmental policy objectives. Reviews promote peer learning, enhance government accountability, and provide targeted recommendations aimed at improving environmental performance, individually and collectively. They are supported by a broad range of economic and environmental data, and evidence-based analysis. Each cycle of Environmental Performance Reviews covers all OECD countries and selected partner economies.
This report is the second Environmental Performance Review of Chile. It evaluates progress towards sustainable development and green growth, with a focus on climate change and biodiversity conservation and sustainable use.
Chile has taken steps to address the rising environmental pressures from its rapid economic growth, strengthening its environmental institutions and introducing new instruments, including a carbon tax. It now needs to move ahead and thoroughly implement policy measures to stem the threat to its land, air and water, according to a new OECD report.

The Survey of Adult Skills (PIAAC) directly measures proficiency in several information-processing skills – namely literacy, numeracy and problem solving in technology-rich environments.
Poor skills severely reduce a person’s chance of a better-paying and more-rewarding job, and have a major impact on how the benefits of economic growth are shared within societies. In countries where large shares of adults have poor skills, it is difficult to introduce productivity-enhancing technologies and new ways of working, which stalls improvements in living standards, according to a new OECD report.

Chile has established itself as a regional leader and has been rapidly closing the gap with other OECD countries in the field of digital government.
It is a pleasure for me to welcome you today to the official launch of the new OECD Latin America and the Caribbean Regional Programme. This achievement has been a longtime aspiration for Chile and Mexico, the only two Latin American OECD member countries thus far.
It is a great honor for me to chair this Ministerial Council Meeting (MCM) of the OECD for the first time, since Chile joined the Organization in May 2010. Over these six years as a member country, we have been strongly benefited from the policy guidance provided by this organization, and assimilated key lessons from many of the member countries and partners on how to address our common economic and social challenges in the best way.
