    Labour market consequences of a transition to a circular economy - A review paper

    Resource efficiency and circular economy policies aim at reducing resource intensity and use throughout the economy, thereby decreasing environmental impacts. Besides the environmental benefits expected from these policies, potential employment benefits are often emphasised, which would follow the anticipated structural changes in the economy from material-intensive to more labour-intensive activities. However, the size of the employment effect is still unclear and difficult to quantify. To date, the quantitative literature on the employment impacts of the circular economy is still scarce. This study is the first of its kind to review the available studies on this increasingly important policy issue.

    Common Ground Between the Paris Agreement and the Sendai Framework - Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction

    Countries are faced with the growing challenge of managing increasing risks from climate change and climate variability, putting development and the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals at risk. The adoption in 2015 of the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Paris Agreement on climate change provides a clear mandate for increased coherence in countries’ approaches to climate and disaster risk reduction. Countries increasingly recognise the benefits of improved coherence between the two policy areas, exemplified by the number of countries that either have developed joint strategies or put in place processes that facilitate co-ordination. Informed by the country approaches of Ghana, Peru and the Philippines, in addition to a review of relevant literature, this report examines the potential for increased coherence in approaches to climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction across levels of government and sectors. It identifies ways in which government officials, development co-operation and other stakeholders can support efforts to further enhance coherence between the two policy areas, not only in the three case study countries, but also those in other countries as well as providers of development co-operation.

    Vers une utilisation durable des terres - Aligner les politiques en matière de biodiversité, de climat et d’alimentation

    L’utilisation des terres occupe une place centrale dans bon nombre des défis environnementaux et socioéconomiques d’aujourd’hui. Ce rapport examine les problèmes actuels devant être surmontés pour mettre la politique foncière en phase avec les objectifs en matière de climat, de biodiversité et d’alimentation, ainsi que les possibilités de rendre les systèmes d’utilisation des terres plus durables. Six pays sont étudiés : Brésil, France, Indonésie, Irlande, Mexique et Nouvelle-Zélande. Tous se caractérisent par un secteur agricole et forestier relativement important et des émissions de gaz à effet de serre correspondantes élevées. La plupart de ces pays abritent également une biodiversité d’importance mondiale. À partir de l’analyse des stratégies et plans nationaux, ainsi que des instruments d’action et de coordination institutionnelle mis en place par ces pays, le rapport fournit des indications sur les bonnes pratiques permettant de mieux aligner les processus de décision en matière d’utilisation des terres et de rendre plus cohérents les objectifs concernant l’utilisation des terres, le climat, les écosystèmes et l’alimentation.

    Trends in water-related technological innovation - Insights from patent data

    Innovation has a role to play to mitigate water-related risks and to support the provision of water services on which our well-being and sustainable development depend. Water-related innovation originate in a wide range of countries, with different levels of ambition. They disseminate at different scales globally. This paper uses patent data to document trends in the invention of technologies to promote water security since 1990, focusing on the countries in which inventions are developed, where they might be commercialised, and in which subsectors they originate. The water-related technologies identified in the paper can be clustered into three categories: i) water pollution abatement; ii) demand-side; and iii) supply-side. The paper describes a number of important trends that can inform a broader discussion on the factors that might hinder, or enhance, inventive activity to promote water security.
