This Global Forum, held on 24-25 October 2016, aimed to shed light on the links between environment and economic growth, and the toolkits to quantify these links. It provided a platform to explore how a well-managed natural environment can contribute to economic growth and how an effective and efficient regulatory system can best be designed?
La biodiversité assure des services écosystémiques essentiels comme la sécurité alimentaire, l’épuration de l’eau, le cycle des éléments nutritifs et la régulation du climat, qui sont indispensables au bien-être des êtres humains et à la croissance économique.
In recognition of the fundamental importance of understanding energy related environmental issues, the IEA CO2 Emissions from Fuel Combustion provides a full analysis of emissions stemming from energy use. This annual publication has become an essential tool for analysts and policy makers in many international fora such as the Conference of the Parties, which will be meeting in Marrakesh, Morocco, from 7 to 18 November 2016.
The data in this book are designed to assist in understanding the evolution of the emissions of CO2 from 1971 to 2014 for 150 countries and regions by sector and by fuel. Emissions were calculated using IEA energy databases and the default methods and emission factors from the 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories.
This note sets out projections for climate finance in 2020 along with the underlying assumptions and methodologies used to construct them based on recent climate finance pledges by countries and multilateral institutions.
Building on the success of the previous Green Investment Financing Forums, the OECD held its 3rd Forum on 13-14 October 2016 in Tokyo, Japan. This year’s edition focused on Asia – a region with rapidly growing economies, developing financial markets and colossal green investment needs. Speaker presentations and biographies are now available.
Traditional measures of productivity do not fully take into account the use of environmental services for economic growth. This is why the OECD has started to integrate pollution and the use of natural resources into a new indicator: “Environmentally adjusted multifactor productivity”.
On the latest OECD Insights blog post, Mr. Kurt van Dender, Head of the Tax and Environment Unit at the OECD’s Centre for Tax Policy and Administration explains the necessary requirements to deeply cut greenhouse gas emissions in order to implement the COP21 Paris Agreement.
Greening Economies in the Eastern Neighbourhood” (EaP GREEN) programme is being implemented by OECD in co-operation with UNECE, UNEP, and UNIDO to assist the European Union’s Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries in their transition to green economies. Read the latest news and upcoming events.
A broader use of environmental taxation or emission trading systems would be one of the most efficient and effective ways of promoting green growth.
I am delighted to welcome you to the OECD Environment Ministerial meeting. Since we gather only every four years, it is an important opportunity to discuss the national and international environmental policy landscape for years to come. The adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement on Climate Change will inevitably shape discussions.
