The OECD, through its Strategy on Development, is working to give more clarity to the concept of PCD; improve understanding of its relevance for all countries; develop tools to measure progress; and provide opportunities for a more inclusive dialogue with developing countries and key stakeholders. As part of this initiative, the OECD is fostering a more focused, issues-based approach to policy coherence for development, and highlighting ways in which policy coherence can contribute to a post-2015 agenda.

 

Objectives and definition:

Policy coherence for development is an approach and a tool for integrating the economic, social, environmental and governancedimensions of sustainable development at all stages of domestic and international policy making. Its main objectives are to:

  • Address the negative spillovers of domestic policies on long-term development prospects.
  • Increase governments' capacities to identify trade-offs and reconcile domestic policy objectives with internationally agreed objectives.
  • Foster synergies across economic, social and environmental policy areas to support sustainable development.

In the post-2015 framework, PCD entails:

  • Identifying and addressing the interactions among various policies in the economic, social, environmental, legal and political domains to support pathways towards inclusive sustainable growth.
  • Putting in place institutional mechanisms, processes and tools to produce effective, efficient, sustainable and coherent policies in key sectors and situations of on-going crisis.
  • Developing evidence-based analysis, sound data and reliable indicators to inform decision-making and help translate political commitments into practice.
  • Fostering multi-stakeholder policy dialogue to identify the barriers to, and the catalysts for, economic and social transformation.

Levels of implementation:

Drawing on its multidisciplinary expertise, the OECD suggests to use PCD at five complementary levels for implementing the post-2015 agenda:
