Global Forum on Environment

 

The Global Forum on Environment* (GFENV) is a venue that brings together international experts from member and non-member economies to share experiences and explore common policy issues focusing principally on the environmental dimension of sustainable development and its linkages with economic and social policies. Issues to be addressed in the Global Forum on Environment are shaped based on the current work of the OECD Environment Programme, by focusing on one or two priority issues on the global environmental agenda each year.

(* formerly known as Global Forum on Sustainable Development)

Objectives

  • Raise awareness and understanding of the environment dimension of sustainable development issues worldwide;
  • Facilitate information-sharing on environmental issues among policy makers, private sector actors and civil society representatives; and
