    Promouvoir la croissance verte en agriculture - Rôle de la formation, du conseil et de la vulgarisation

    L’investissement dans les connaissances pour favoriser l'adoption de pratiques respectueuses de l'environnement est un facteur déterminant des processus d’innovation dans le secteur de l’agriculture mais l’impact et le coût des initiatives existantes ont été peu évalués malgré une modification radicale de l'orientation, de l’organisation et des modes d’intervention. Ce rapport étudie le rôle, les performances et l'impact des initiatives relatives aux services de conseil agricole, à la formation et à la vulgarisation prises dans les pays de l’OCDE pour favoriser la croissance verte dans l'agriculture. Le rapport s’appuie sur une série d’études de cas pour examiner de nombreuses questions de méthode et les avantages associés à différents types de prestataires, et il identifie les pratiques de gestion agricole durable les plus performantes.

    Public Goods and Externalities - Agri-environmental Policy Measures in Selected OECD Countries

    Agriculture is a provider of commodities such as food, feed, fibre and fuel, and it can bring both positive and negative impacts on the environment. Yet most policy measures target farm systems, inputs and practices and agricultural infrastructure (driving forces) rather than the provision of agri-environmental public goods (environmental outcomes).This report analyses how a handful of OECD countries (Australia, Canada, Japan, United Kingdom and the United States) defines agri-environmental public goods and sets agri-environmental targets and reference levels, and the policies they implement for targeting certain agri-environmental public goods.

    Eurostat-OECD Compilation guide on land estimations

    The repercussions of the 2007–2008 financial crisis have acted as an impetus to improve the quality and availability of statistical information. One such initiative addresses the importance of compiling a complete accounting of a nation’s wealth, and especially the wealth of households. This is of particular importance in view of the housing market’s role in the financial crisis in several countries.
    The most valuable item on the households’ balance sheet is usually housing wealth which is composed of the value of the dwelling and its underlying land. Many countries experience difficulties in valuing land and in particular separating the value of the land from the value of the structure. To assist countries, the Eurostat-OECD compilation guide on land estimation represents the first comprehensive overview of conceptual and practical issues related to the compilation of the balance sheet item land in the national accounts, in total and by institutional sector.
    The Eurostat-OECD compilation guide on land estimation was prepared by the Task Force on Land and other non-financial assets under the joint leadership of Eurostat and the OECD. Representatives from various European Union (EU) and non-EU OECD countries were represented as well as the European Central Bank.
