    Inventory of Energy Subsidies in the EU's Eastern Partnership Countries

    This publication aims to provide the first comprehensive and consistent record of energy subsidies in the EaP region, with a view to improving transparency and establishing a solid analytical basis that can help build the case for further reforms in these countries (this study covers Armenia, Azerbaijan Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine). Based on OECD standard methodology, the study provides quantitative estimates of government support provided to consumers and producers of coal, oil and related petroleum products, natural gas, and electricity and heat generated on the basis of these fossil fuels. This report also briefly looks at public support allocated to energy efficiency measures and renewable energy sources in the EaP countries, and discusses the taxation and energy pricing policies that underpin the analysis of energy subsidies.

    This publication was prepared within the framework of the “Greening Economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood” (EaP GREEN) Project, supported by the European Union and co-ordinated with governments of the EaP countries and UN partners: UNECE, UN Environment and UNIDO.

    Taxing Energy Use 2018 - Companion to the Taxing Energy Use Database

    This report measures the magnitude and coverage of taxes on energy use (energy and carbon taxes) in 42 OECD and G20 countries, representing approximately 80% of global energy use and CO2-emissions associated with energy use. LONG This report measures the magnitude and coverage of taxes on energy use (energy and carbon taxes) in 42 OECD and G20 countries, representing approximately 80% of global energy use and CO2-emissions associated with energy use. Emissions from energy use cause environmental and health damages and they also contribute to climate change. As a result, the social cost of energy use frequently exceeds its private cost. Taxes on energy use have the potential to close this gap, while raising revenue that can be used to fund vital government services. While such considerations are taken into account in policy design, carbon and other taxes on energy use are also shaped by political economy considerations and historical precedent. This report reveals that the combined impact of these forces results in taxes that fall short of their potential contribution to reaching economic, social and environmental policy goals as effectively as possible.

    De nouvelles améliorations sont nécessaires pour gérer le risque d’inondation majeure à Paris et sur le bassin de la Seine

    Des initiatives importantes ont été engagées ces dernières années afin de prévenir le risque d’inondation majeure à Paris et dans la région Île-de-France – notamment après la crue de la Seine en mai et juin 2016 –, mais il faut mieux penser la planification urbaine et l’aménagement du territoire, renforcer davantage la gouvernance et rechercher des solutions de financement à long terme, d’après l’OCDE.

    Insights blog: Rice and risks in the Mekong River Delta

    The wet and verdant expanse of the Mekong Delta’s rivers and farms is a veritable rice bowl for the world. Not only do the region’s paddies produce half of Viet Nam’s rice crop yearly, the country is the world’s third largest rice exporter, with 17% of world exports of paddy rice. Our analysis identifies Viet Nam as facing the world’s fourth highest water risks for rice production.
