    Lignes directrices pour des mesures agroenvironnementales efficaces

    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 ou fonctionnent mal pour de nombreux résultats environnementaux de l’agriculture.

    L’étude porte sur la conception et la mise en œuvre de normes et réglementations environnementales, d’écotaxes, de paiements environnementaux et de systèmes de permis négociables pour traiter les problèmes agroenvironnementaux. Elle aborde la question du choix des instruments d’action et de la conception d’instruments spécifiques, dans le but d’identifier ceux qui sont les plus efficaces par rapport à leur coût dans des situations très différentes d’un pays de l’OCDE à l’autre.

    Les conclusions fondamentales qui se dégagent de cette étude sont qu’il n’existe pas d’instrument particulier qui laisse les pouvoirs publics espérer atteindre tous les objectifs agroenvironnementaux ; que l’efficacité des dispositifs de paiement pourrait être améliorée en ayant recours à des mesures fondées sur les résultats ; et qu’il est nécessaire que les combinaisons d’instruments comportent des instruments de politique qui se complètent et ne soient pas incompatibles.

    The Economics of Rebuilding Fisheries - Workshop Proceedings

    Rebuilding fisheries is a key challenge for many countries as some stocks are in a poor state while others are depleted.  In May 2009, economists, biologists, fisheries managers and policy makers participated in an OECD Workshop on the Economics of Rebuilding Fisheries. The workshop was designed to identify and analyse economic uncertainties, policy issues, biological conditions and information constraints, and to review the role of key players in program delivery. This conference proceedings presents an overview of the major economic and institutional issues associated with rebuilding fisheries and provides examples of national and international initiatives.

    Globalisation in Fisheries and Aquaculture - Opportunities and Challenges

    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 must develop and implement fisheries management frameworks and aquaculture strategies that accommodate globalisation without undermining resource sustainability.

    Bioheat, Biopower and Biogas - Developments and Implications for Agriculture

    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; these support measures are highly diverse and are given at national and various sub-national levels.

     

    The results of a large number of life-cycle analyses of various bioheat and biopower chains reviewed in this study indicate that the objective to reduce GHG emissions and fossil energy use is met; indeed the savings estimated for most chains are substantial when compared to fossil alternatives. At present, most of the chains examined do not compete with food and feed production, and thus the implications for agricultural markets are small. It is clear, however, that if a stronger focus on agricultural biomass crops is to be developed, this will require careful design of support policies so as to avoid compromising the ability of the agricultural sector to provide food and feed in a sustainable manner.
