    Greening Household Behaviour and Water - Environment Working Paper No. 73

    This report focuses on households’ behaviour in relation to water use. It presents the results of follow-up analysis of the 2011 OECD Survey on Environmental Policy and Individual Behaviour Change (EPIC) where econometric techniques are applied. The analysis shows that households whose bill depends on actual water use are unambiguously more likely to exhibit pro-environmental behaviours in terms of water use.

    Energy, Climate Change and Environment - 2014 Insights

    Policies that respond to climate change and other environmental issues will increasingly impact the development of the global energy sector. The transition to low-carbon economies will need to be carefully managed, as the provision of secure, affordable energy is critical for economic growth and social development. More than ever, there is a need for a fuller understanding of the opportunities to promote synergies between energy, environmental and climate policies. Energy, Climate Change, and Environment: 2014 Insights helps address this need with in-depth analysis of selected policy questions at the energy-climate interface, including:

    • How can we accelerate the transition from (i.e. "unlock") existing high-emissions infrastructure?
    • What are the best ways to design cost-effective emissions trading systems that fit with national circumstances?
    • What are some alternative energy-specific metrics that support near-term emissions reductions and long-term decarbonisation of the energy sector?
    • And, in the special focus of this report, can curbing local air pollution help reconcile energy priorities with environmental sustainability, including greenhouse gas mitigation?

    Addressing these questions will help inform decisions that can boost decarbonisation of the energy sector while taking into account security and economic objectives.

    This report also features an update of key energy and emissions statistics for ten world regions that should interest energy practitioners and climate policy makers alike.

    Water-Energy-Food: Taking on the Nexus

    By 2050, the world’s population will have risen to 9 billion. By then, the demand for water will have risen by 55% and demand for food by 60%. And on top of this, a world economy that is four times larger than today could be using up to 80% more energy.
