    Better Policies for Development 2014 - Policy Coherence and Illicit Financial Flows

    This edition of Better Policies for Development focuses on illicit financial flows and their detrimental effects on development and growth. Every year, huge sums of money are transferred out of developing countries illegally. The numbers are disputed, but illicit financial flows are often cited as outstripping official development aid and inward investment. These flows strip resources from developing countries that could be used to finance much-needed public services, such as health care and education.

    This report defines policy coherence for development as a global tool for creating enabling environments for development in a post-2015 context. It shows that coherent policies in OECD countries in areas such as tax evasion, anti-bribery and money laundering can contribute to reducing illicit financial flows from developing countries. It also provides an update on OECD efforts to develop a monitoring matrix for policy coherence for development, based upon existing OECD indicators of ‘policy effort’. The report also includes contributions from member states. Most illustrate national processes to deal with policy coherence for development beyond 2015.

    Pomegranate

    This brochure is published within the framework of the Scheme for the Application of International Standards for Fruit and Vegetables established by OECD in 1962. This is the first OECD brochure which is based on a Codex Standard. It interprets the first international standard on pomegranates, which was adopted by the Codex Alimentarius Commission in 2013. It comprises explanatory notes and illustrations to facilitate the uniform interpretation of this new standard. This new brochure illustrates the standard text and demonstrates the quality parameters on high quality photographs. Thus, it is a valuable tool for the inspection authorities, professional bodies and traders interested in international trade in pomegranates. The brochure also includes a USB key containing the hyperlinked electronic version of the publication, as well as all illustrative materials in high definition photographs.  .

    OECD Secretary-General hails new WTO agreement: a victory for multilateralism

    Mr Gurría said the trade facilitation agreement at the core of the new package would cut red tape and speed border crossings worldwide, offering an important boost to world trade and the global economy. "As OECD work has highlighted, the benefits of lowering costs for traders are significant, and are particularly welcome today, given the slow growth seen in so many countries," Mr Gurría said.

    Moyens d'action au service de la croissance verte en agriculture

    Ce rapport fait la synthèse des expériences des pays de l’OCDE en matière d’élaboration et de mise en œuvre des politiques, des programmes et des initiatives en rapport avec la croissance verte dans le secteur agricole, en s’appuyant essentiellement sur les éléments communiqués par les pays. Le rapport examine l’approche globale adoptée par les pays pour élaborer une stratégie de croissance verte en agriculture ;  il aborde également la mise en œuvre du cadre de suivi des progrès vers la croissance verte en agriculture, élaboré par l’OCDE ; et  il examine les différents moyens d’action utilisés.

    Une conclusion principale est que si la plupart des pays se sont dotés de politiques articulées autour du concept de croissance verte, le degré d’ambition de leurs objectifs en la matière varie considérablement. Les pays de l’OCDE appliquent une large gamme d’instruments ainsi qu’un grand nombre de « panoplies de mesures ». La majorité d’entre eux ont défini des objectifs stratégiques couvrant un grand nombre de thématiques liées à la croissance verte, en particulier dans le domaine de l’amélioration de l’efficacité énergétique et de la réduction de l’empreinte carbone du secteur agricole. Un cadre d’action général cohérent, qui comprend des objectifs clairs et définit des priorités en matière de R-D ainsi que des mesures ciblées et mises en œuvre aux niveaux appropriés, sont essentiels pour établir une stratégie globale de croissance verte dans le secteur agricole.

    La fourniture de biens publics agro-environnementaux par l'action collective

    La fourniture de biens publics agro-environnementaux par l’action collective passe en revue l’expérience de plusieurs pays Membres de l’OCDE dans le but d’analyser comment l’action collective peut être efficace pour promouvoir la fourniture de biens publics agroenvironnementaux, tels que la biodiversité et les paysages. L’étude porte sur vingt-cinq cas dans 13 pays (Australie, Belgique, Canada, Finlande, France, Allemagne, Italie, Japon, Pays-Bas, Nouvelle-Zélande, Espagne, Suède et Royaume-Uni). L’étude montre que l’action collective est une voie à envisager sérieusement pour traiter de nombreux problèmes liés à l’agriculture et aux ressources naturelles, et qu’elle devrait être expressément encouragée dans certaines situations.
