Environmental country reviews

OECD Environmental Performance Reviews

 

Since the inception of the Environmental Performance Reviews programme in 1992, most of the OECD member countries have been reviewed twice: during the first (1992-2000) and the second (2001-09) cycle. Some OECD non-members have been reviewed, such as China and Russia. The third cycle of reviews effectively began in 2010, with a new approach that systematically incorporates key environmental trends, policy-making environment and green growth, plus two thematic chapters. 

In April 2014, the OECD published the Environmental Performance Review of Colombia, which will feed into talks on Colombia's accession to the OECD. Iceland and Sweden's reviews will be launched in September.
