Presentations and information from a workshop on how OECD member countries can develop fisheries strategies to adapt to climate change, Busan, Korea, 10-11 June 2010
L’amélioration de la performance environnementale de l’agriculture est une priorité dans les pays de l’OCDE et dans de nombreux pays non membres de l’OCDE. Elle sera une préoccupation croissante à l’avenir étant donné les pressions qui s’exerceront pour nourrir une population mondiale en augmentation avec des ressources en terres et en eau limitées. Les politiques ont un rôle important à jouer lorsque les marchés sont inexistants
Global markets for fish and fish products have changed considerably over the past few decades and continue to do so. Countries must work harder on fisheries and aquaculture management to remain sustainable, says this overview of globalisation in fisheries and aquaculture.
Proceedings of an OECD workshop in May 2009, an overview of the major economic and institutional issues associated with rebuilding fisheries, including examples of national and international initiatives.

The workshop was designed to identify and analyse economic uncertainties, policy issues, biological conditions and information constraints, and to review the role
Presentations and information from a 2010 OECD workshop on policy challenges that governments face in aquaculture development, including economic, environmental and social aspects.
This overview of global markets for fish and fish products finds that they have changed considerably over the past few decades and continue to do so, with ever growing interactions across countries and continents. Change has brought substantial benefits to the world economy and a number of policy challenges for governments. To meet these challenges, without compromising the advantages of increasing market interactions, countries
This report complements earlier OECD work on liquid biofuels and provides information on biomass based heat and power, as well as on biogas. It discusses the heterogeneous portfolio of different biomass feedstocks, conversion technologies, and pathways of utilisation. It also shows that governments in many countries provide substantial support to the production and use of renewable energy in general, and bioenergy in particular;
In developing a stronger focus on agricultural biomass crops, governments will have to design support policies so as to avoid compromising the ability of the agricultural sector to provide food and feed in a sustainable manner, this study finds.
