The OECD was asked to provide an up-to-date aggregate estimate of mobilised climate finance in relation to the commitment by developed countries to jointly mobilise USD 100 billion a year by 2020 for climate action in developing countries. We have done this work in collaboration with Climate Policy Initiative.
Les financements publics et privés mobilisés par les pays développés à l’appui d’actions climatiques dans les pays en développement ont atteint 62 milliards USD en 2014 contre 52 milliards USD en 2013, soit en moyenne 57 milliards USD par an au cours de la période 2013-14.
The EAP Task Force will discuss contributions to the 2016 “Environment for Europe” Ministerial Conference, ongoing work on access to private finance for green investments in Ukraine, recent work on creating market incentives for greener products, and the work plan for 2016. It will also review activities carried out in framework of the EU Water Initiative, and the future work plan on strengthening water management policies in EECCA.
Addressing climate change requires urgent policy action to drive a global infrastructure and technological transformation. The latest report 'Aligning Policies for a Low-carbon Economy' presents the first diagnosis of the alignments of policy and regulatory frameworks with climate policy goals. Join the Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP) for a webinar exploring these issues on 5 October 2015, 15:00-16:30 (Paris time).

The rapid development of tourism and energy-intensive industry is exerting increasing pressures on the environmental assets upon which much of Iceland’s growth has been founded.
As we approach COP21 it is becoming increasingly clear that more ambition is needed to get us on a 2 degree pathway. But it is not just about committing to emission reduction targets by 2030. Governments need to demonstrate how their policies will credibly put them on a pathway to even deeper reductions.
The current Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal highlights the difficult reality of making the transition to a low-carbon economy. It also highlights the growing need for governments to make smart policies, based on actual costs.
We know that the adverse impacts of climate change are expected to slow growth and exacerbate poverty. An effective climate response is therefore not only an environmental necessity but an integral part of sustainable development.
Le ruissellement de l'azote dans l'agriculture menaçait les eaux limpides du lac Taupo - le plus grand et le plus emblématique lac de Nouvelle-Zélande - et d'endommager d'importantes activités économiques et culturelles. En 2011, le gouvernement régional a présenté des mesures de la qualité de l'eau, une expérience politique audacieuse et unique. Rapport disponible en anglais.
Cost-benefit analyses and other quantitative appraisals are used in many countries to support decision-making in public policy, including investment projects in sectors such as transport and energy. This paper discusses the range of approaches which can be employed to value changes in carbon emissions in policy appraisalsand presents some case studies and a survey of current practice in OECD countries.
