    Launch of the OECD Environmental Performance Review of Brazil

    As the world’s most biodiverse country, Brazil is blessed with both the responsibility to protect - and the opportunity to benefit socially and economically from - its abundant natural capital.

    Current state of mobilisation of climate finance

    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.

    Betting the planet: A climate reality check

    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.

    Climat : ce qui a changé, ce qui n’a pas changé et ce que nous pouvons faire - À six mois de la COP 21

    Si nous ne parvenons pas à réduire à zéro les émissions nettes de CO2, les températures continueront d’augmenter. Lorsque je l’ai dit, voilà deux ans, certains en doutaient. Aujourd’hui, je suis heureux de voir que ce constat fait autorité et qu’il constitue un objectif commun.
