Reports

  • Forthcoming Q1, 2018 - Biodiversity and Development: Mainstreaming and managing for results

    This report will focus on three key areas: mainstreaming biodiversity and development objectives at the national and sectoral levels (e.g. in agriculture, fisheries, and forestry), and how to monitor and evaluate mainstreaming performance.

Workshop on Biodiversity, Climate Change and Agriculture

The OECD Workshop on Biodiversity, Climate Change and Agriculture: Towards Coherent Approaches, held on 25 October 2017 at the OECD Paris, examined how to consider, in a coherent manner, two environmental challenges - biodiversity loss and climate change and the inter-relationships with agricultural productivity.

Drawing on insights from a range of OECD countries, the aim was to share experiences, challenges and good practice insights to improve alignment and effectiveness of policies across these three areas.
