    Assessing the Real Cost of Disasters - The Need for Better Evidence

    Disasters disrupt socio-economic activities and cause substantial damage. Yet, their full economic impact remains largely unknown, especially the cost of smaller disasters and indirect impacts such as those due to business disruptions. Similarly, little information exists on the total amount of public resources that countries devote to disaster risk management. Reliable, comprehensive and comparable data on the economic impact of disasters as well as on public spending on disaster management and risk prevention are essential for developing effective disaster risk management policies. This report provides an overview of countries' efforts to improve the quality and quantity of information on the costs of disasters.

    Guide OCDE sur le devoir de diligence applicable aux chaînes d'approvisionnement responsables dans le secteur de l'habillement et de la chaussure

    Le Guide OCDE sur le devoir de diligence applicable aux chaînes d’approvisionnement responsables dans le secteur de l’habillement et de la chaussure a pour but d’aider les entreprises de ce même secteur à mettre en œuvre les recommandations des Principes directeurs de l’OCDE à l’intention des entreprises multinationales portant sur l’application du devoir de diligence tout au long de la chaîne d’approvisionnement. Ce guide a également pour but d’éviter les incidences négatives liées aux activités et aux modes d’approvisionnements de ces entreprises, et propose de traiter ces incidences négatives. Ce guide s’inscrit dans la continuité des Principes directeurs de l’OCDE, l’objectif étant de garantir que les entreprises du secteur de l’habillement et de la chaussure exercent leurs activités dans le respect des politiques publiques nationales, et que, la confiance mutuelle entre les entreprises et les sociétés au sein desquelles elles opèrent, soit renforcée. Ce Guide servira également d’appui aux entreprises pour mettre en œuvre les recommandations relatives au devoir de diligence figurant dans les Principes Directeurs des Nations Unies relatifs aux entreprises et aux droits de l’homme. Le contenu de ce Guide est par ailleurs conforme à celui de la Déclaration de l'Organisation Internationale du Travail (OIT) relative aux principes et aux droits fondamentaux au travail, à celui des Conventions et Recommandations de l’OIT, et à celui de la Déclaration de principes tripartite de l'OIT sur les entreprises multinationales et la politique sociale. Avec ses modules sur l’exercice du devoir de diligence dans certaines zones à risques spécifiques, ce Guide se veut exhaustif pour permettre aux entreprises du secteur de l’habillement et de la chaussure d’exercer leurs activités et de s’approvisionner de manière responsable.
    Ce Guide est le fruit d’un processus multipartite impliquant des pays membres et non-membres de l’OCDE, ainsi que des représentants d’entreprises, de syndicats et de la société civile. Il a été supervisé par le Groupe de travail sur la conduite responsable des entreprises. Ce Guide s’appuie sur les rapports détaillés que les Points de contact nationaux pour les Principes directeurs de l’OCDE (PCN) en France et en Italie ont rédigés au sujet de l’application des Principes directeurs de l’OCDE dans le secteur de l’habillement et de la chaussure. Il fait suite aux déclarations des PCN de juin 2013 et de juin 2014 après l’effondrement tragique du Rana Plaza.

    Working Together for Local Integration of Migrants and Refugees

    Behind every migration statistic, there are individuals or families starting a new life in a new place. Local authorities, in co-ordination with all levels of government and other local partners, play a key role in integrating these newcomers and empowering them to contribute to their new communities. Integration needs to happen where people are: in their workplaces, their neighbourhoods, the schools to which they send their children and the public spaces where they will spend their free time. This report describes what it takes to formulate a place-based approach to integration through concerted efforts across levels of government as well as between state and non-state actors. It draws on both quantitative evidence, from a statistical database, and qualitative evidence from a survey of 72 cities. These include nine large European cities (Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Berlin, Glasgow, Gothenburg, Paris, Rome and Vienna) and one small city in Germany (Altena), which are the subject of in-depth case studies. The report also presents a 12-point checklist, a tool that any city or region – in Europe, the OECD or beyond – can use to work across levels of government and with other local actors in their efforts to promote more effective integration of migrants.

    Housing Dynamics in Korea - Building Inclusive and Smart Cities

    Housing in Korea has been part of the government policy development agenda for the past three decades contributing to reducing the historical housing shortage and improving the quality of dwellings. Despite its achievements, Korea now faces a housing affordability challenge as prices are too high for several social groups (i.e. newly wedded), owner occupancy levels are decreasing, and social housing is struggling to meet demand. Korea has a complex social housing system largely focused on low-income households, who still suffer from housing poverty in terms of housing stability, affordability and quality.
    A holistic view on housing policy to promote a more inclusive society and sustainable economic growth is needed. To overcome the current housing challenge requires expanding the network of public housing providers by including the private and community sectors that could alleviate the government’s financial burden. Korea is linking housing and urban regeneration strategies to respond to the complex challenges of social inclusion, job creation, housing and economic revitalisation. Korea has been at the forefront of smart city development for more than a decade, which has brought benefits to Korean cities such as integrated transport systems, and it is now committed to applying the concept as a vehicle for inclusive growth.

    The cost of catastrophe: Why putting a price-tag on disaster is our best protection

    OECD countries have gotten much better at preparing for and responding to disasters, and fatality rates have gone down. What we’re not so good at, however, is reducing the economic fallout from natural disasters. Blog by OECD's Catherine Gamper.
