    Energy Efficiency Indicators - Essentials for Policy Making

    Energy efficiency is widely recognised as the most cost-effective and readily available means to address numerous energy-related issues, including energy security, the social and economic impacts of high energy prices, and concerns about climate change. At the same time, energy efficiency increases competitiveness and promotes consumer welfare. In this context, it is important to develop and maintain well-founded indicators to better inform policy making and help decision makers formulate policies that are best suited to domestic and/or international objectives.

    This publication enables energy analysts and policy makers to identify priority areas for the development of energy efficiency indicators, define which sector(s) offer the greatest potential to further improve energy efficiency, select the data and indicators that best support policy development in these sectors, and develop a strategy to advance policy development through the improved use of indicators to track progress of energy efficiency policies.

    Energy Efficiency Indicators - Fundamentals on Statistics

    Energy efficiency is high on the political agenda as governments seek to reduce wasteful energy consumption, strengthen energy security and cut greenhouse gas emissions. However, the lack of data for developing proper indicators to measure energy efficiency often prevents countries from transforming declarations into actions.

    This manual identifies the main sectoral indicators and the data needed to develop these indicators; and to make surveying, metering and modeling practices existing all around the world available to all. It has been developed with a companion document, Energy Efficiency Indicators: Essentials for Policy Making, as a starting point towards enabling policymakers to understand where greater efficiency is needed, to implement appropriate policies and to measure their impact.

    Water Governance in Jordan - Overcoming the Challenges to Private Sector Participation

    This report assesses the main governance and financing challenges to private sector participation (PSP) in the water supply and sanitation sector of Jordan, and provides ways forward to address them, based on international experience and OECD compendium of principles and good practices. Using the diagnostic analysis of the governance challenges to PSP in the Jordan water sector (Chapter 1), the report identifies ways forward to overcome bottlenecks focusing on three key pillars (Chapter 2): i) managing public-private partnership in a fiscally constrained environment through appropriate budget processes; ii) reducing the regulatory risks through supporting the development of a high-quality framework; and iii)managing and enhancing stakeholder engagement to improve accountability and buy-in. The report also includes an action plan with concrete measures to implement the recommendations proposed in the report.

    The report has been developed as part of a water policy dialogue conducted by the OECD jointly with the Global Water Partnership-Mediterranean (GWP-Med) in the context of the project labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) “Governance and Financing for the Mediterranean Water Sector”, with the support of the FEMIP Trust Fund of the European Investment Bank.

    La hausse de la mortalité liée à la pollution de l’air urbain fait payer un lourd tribut à la société, selon l’OCDE

    Du fait des décès prématurés et problèmes de santé qu’elle occasionne, la pollution de l’air urbain coûterait, selon les estimations, 3 500 milliards de dollars par an aux économies avancées, ainsi qu’à la Chine et à l’Inde. Si les pouvoirs publics ne font rien de plus pour limiter les émissions de CO2 des véhicules, ce coût ne cessera de croître, selon un nouveau rapport de l’OCDE.

    Launch of OECD report – The Cost of Air Pollution: Health Impacts of Road Transport

    New data collected by the World Health Organisation shows that outdoor air pollution kills over three and a half million people worldwide every year – far more than was previously estimated.

    Perspectives des transports FIT 2013 - Financer les transports

    Les Perspectives des transports du FIT présentent une analyse des scénarios possibles à long terme ainsi que des statistiques sur les tendances récemment observées dans le domaine des transports et de leur infrastructure. On y recense les déterminants des évolutions passées et ceux des tendances envisageables pour l’avenir, et étudie leur intérêt pour l’élaboration des politiques. De même, on expose les facteurs susceptibles de tirer à la baisse ou à la hausse l’offre et la demande de services de transport et analyse leur incidence potentielle.

    La présente édition porte sur les scénarios d’évolution des volumes de transport à l’échelle mondiale à l’horizon 2050. L’analyse présentée met en évidence l’incidence qu’aurait chacun de ces scénarios sur la croissance mondiale des flux de fret et de voyageurs, ainsi que les conséquences que l’urbanisation rapide observée hors de la zone OCDE devrait avoir sur l’ensemble des volumes de transport et des émissions de CO2. Elle est complétée par une étude de cas sur les transports urbains en Amérique latine, qui passe en revue les caractéristiques du développement urbain et leurs effets à long terme sur la mobilité urbaine, la répartition modale et les émissions de CO2 dans le monde en développement.
