This document describes the state of knowledge of the adverse outcome pathway for skin sensitisation initiated by covalent binding to proteins, assesses the weight-of-evidence for the AOP, identifies the key events, and identifies databases containing test results related to those key event
An adverse outcome pathway can be incorporated into chemical categories-based assessments or integrated approaches for testing and assessment.
We must improve mobility policies, foster energy technology and innovation and we must go seamless to improve efficiency and connectivity of transport. It is time to act now, to design, promote and put in place better transport policies for better lives!
Documents in the Environment, Health and Safety Division series on Pollutant Release and Transfer Registers.
This document identifies general pollutant classes, proposes unique identifiers for pollutants and identifies common substances across different national/regional PRTRs.
This working paper is the first empirical assessment of M&E frameworks used by development co-operation agencies for projects and programmes with adaptation-specific or adaptation-related components. It has analysed 106 project documents across six bilateral development agencies.
Environment Ministers reviewed the implementation of the Environmental Strategy, discussed priorities based on the Environmental Outlook to 2050 which is a strong case for green growth policies and adopted a policy statement as input to Rio+20 UN Conference.
We have passed the limits of our planet’s capacity to support us. It’s time for a big shift, to further advance our understanding on green growth and sustainable development, to share policy experiences and to foster a new environmental consensus, said the OECD Secretary-General.
The conference will cover developments and the state-of-the art of environmental microbiology, as it is applied for biotechnological purposes, and the role of genetic engineering of micro-organisms intended for use in the environment, now and in the near future.
Innovation in technologies that promote mitigation and adaptation is critical for tackling climate change. This paper uses agricultural crop biotechnology as a case study of innovative activity, it is the first empirical quantification innovation in adaptation-related crop biotechnology.
