    Climate Change Risks and Adaptation - Linking Policy and Economics

    Climate change is giving rise to diverse risks, ranging from changing incidences of tropical diseases to increased risks of drought, varying widely in their potential severity, frequency and predictability. Governments must integrate the management of these climate risks into policy making if they are to successfully adapt to a changing climate. Economic analysis has a vital role to play in supporting these efforts, by identifying costs and benefits and supporting decision-making for an uncertain future. However, this analysis needs to be adapted to the institutions, policies and climate risks in a given country. Building on the experience of OECD countries, this report sets out how the latest economic evidence and tools can enable better policy making for adaptation.

    Launch of the OECD Business and Finance Outlook and opening high-level roundtable

    In a sense, today’s ‘newborn’ Business and Finance Outlook is the twin sister of the Economic Outlook. It delves deeper into what we are calling the ‘global investment puzzle’, namely: at a time of easy money, why is there so little productive investment by firms in advanced countries? And why do firms see so much risk while financial investors seem oblivious to the build-up of risks in the financial system?
