This document presents a collection of SIDS Initial Assessment Profiles (SIAP) presenting hazard conclusions for human health and for the environment for chemicals assessed in the OECD HPV Chemicals Programme between 1993 (1st SIDS Initial Assessment Meeting) and 2011 (32nd SIDS Initial Assessment Meeting). This document makes up Part 6 of 6.
This paper examines the effect of multilateral energy technology initiatives, so called "Implementing Agreements", on international research collaboration in seven important climate change mitigation technologies.
This document dealing with biological pesticides is intended to provide guidance to both industry and regulatory authorities, in the context of applications for the approval of microbial biological control agents (mBCAs), and for the registration of microbial biological control products (mBCPs).
This publication presents a major meta-analysis of 'value of a statistical life' (VSL) estimates derived from surveys where people around the world have been asked about their willingness to pay for small reduction in mortality risks.
This report was initiated by the OECD’s Sustainable Chemistry Issue Team. Previous work within the OECD attempted to use patent data to better understand innovative activity in sustainable chemistry. However, more information and analysis is needed to understand the dynamics of innovation in this area, especially from the industrial perspective. In order to begin the process in a preliminary way, researchers from the Yale Center for
This policy guidance outlines a number of steps to be considered when building capacity for greening national development planning, national budgetary processes and key economic sector strategies. It identifies the key actors to be engaged in the decision making processes, outlines possible capacity needs and suggests how these can be addressed. This policy guidance is intended to support developing countries in their efforts to move to a greener development path. It is also intended to assist development co-operation and environment agencies in their efforts to support that process.
This is the report of an OECD workshop on metals specificities in environmental risk assessment, held on 7-8 September 2011 in Paris. The workshop was held following a proposal from the Task Force on Hazard Assessment to organise workshops on the hazard assessment of specific groups of chemicals, and identify opportunities for harmonisation of approaches across regions.
The OECD Green Growth Strategy aims to provide concrete recommendations and measurement tools, including indicators, to support countries’ efforts to achieve economic growth and development, while ensuring that natural assets continue to provide the resources and environmental services on which well-being relies. The strategy proposes a flexible policy framework that can be tailored to different country circumstances and stages of development. This report was coordinated with the International Energy Agency (IEA).
This report looks at the role of the energy sector in moving towards a green growth model and the policies to facilitate the transition. Together with innovation, going green can be a long-term driver for economic growth, through, for example, investing in renewable energy and improved efficiency in the use of energy and materials.
Crecimiento y medio ambiente no sólo pueden ir de la mano, tienen que ir de la mano. El crecimiento verde no sólo es impostergable, también puede ser nuestra salvación económica.
This report presents the results of an OECD Seminar (Paris, May 2010) on biopesticide issues related to the fate in the environment of microbial control agents and their effects on non-target organisms.
