Outcomes of the Meeting



OECD Environment Ministers met on 29-30 March 2012 in Paris under the theme "Making Green Growth Deliver".

They reviewed the implementation of the OECD Environmental Strategy for the First Decade of the 21st Century that they adopted in 2001.

They also discussed future priorities for action based on the OECD Environmental Outlook to 2050: The Consequences of Inaction, which makes a strong case for green growth policies.

Ministers adopted a policy statement as input to Rio+20 UN Conference on Sustainable Development.

Ministerial discussions covered five themes:

  • What Progress have we made on the Environment, and what does the Future Hold?
  • Connecting Environment Policy to the Science
  • The Environmental Outlook to 2050 - An urgent call for green growth policies
  • Adding OECD Value to Rio+20
  • Multi-Level Governance and the Role of Cities
