    Oil 2017

    This year marks a new period of oil market management by leading oil producers, who put together in late 2016 the most comprehensive agreement to limit oil output seen since 2009. The reason was to ensure that oil prices were stabilised to avoid economic dislocation in producing countries and to provide a platform for gradual growth. The agreement brought to an end a two-year free market window in which producers competed to secure outlets for their oil.

    This agreement provides the backdrop to the latest IEA five-year oil market forecast, which was renamed Market Report Series: Oil 2017 (formerly known as the Medium-Term Oil Market Report). While we cannot know how long the deal will last, it provides clear trends to guide our view of the next five years.

    • Oil demand is expected to grow strongly at least to 2022 with the main developing economies leading the way.
    • The need for more production capacity becomes apparent by the end of the decade, even if supply appears plentiful today.
    • It is not clear that upstream projects will be completed in time given the unprecedented two-year fall in investment in 2015 and 2016 although major reductions in costs will help.
    • There is a risk of prices rising more sharply by 2022 if the spare production cushion is eroded.

    The Oil 2017 report, which provides market analysis and forecasts to 2022, sets the scene for what promises to be a transformative period in the history of oil.

    Primary Care in Denmark

    In many ways, primary care in Denmark performs well. Danish primary care is trusted and valued by patients, and is relatively inexpensive. But there are important areas where it needs to be strengthened. Most critically, Danish primary care is relatively opaque in terms of the performance data available at local level. Greater transparency is vital in the next phase of reform and sector strengthening. Robust information on quality and outcomes empowers patients and gives them choice. It can support GPs to benchmark themselves, and engage in continuous quality improvement. It also allows the authorities to better understand where they should direct additional resources. This report draws on evidence and best practice from across OECD health systems to support Denmark in: agreeing on the steps that will strengthen its primary care sector, delivering high-quality, patient-centred care, and establishing a sustainable footing as the foundation for a high-performing health system.

    Behavioural Insights and Public Policy - Lessons from Around the World

    “Behavioural insights”, or insights derived from the behavioural and social sciences, including decision making, psychology, cognitive science, neuroscience, organisational and group behaviour, are being applied by governments with the aim of making public policies work better. As their use has become more widespread, however, questions are being raised about their effectiveness as well as their philosophical underpinnings. This report discusses the use and reach of behavioural insights, drawing on a comprehensive collection of over 100 applications across the world and policy sectors, including consumer protection, education, energy, environment, finance, health and safety, labour market policies, public service delivery, taxes and telecommunications. It suggests ways to ensure that this experimental approach can be successfully and sustainably used as a public policy tool.

    Neutraliser les effets des dispositifs hybrides, Action 2 - Rapport final 2015

    Ce rapport formule des recommandations en vue d’élaborer des règles nationales qui neutraliseront l’effet de dispositifs hybrides, et prévoit d’apporter des modifications au Modèle de Convention fiscale de l’OCDE pour lutter contre ces dispositifs. Une fois transposées dans le droit interne, les recommandations figurant dans la première partie du rapport neutraliseront les effets des dispositifs hybrides transnationaux qui permettent de multiples déductions au titre d’une même dépense ou des déductions opérées dans un pays sans imposition correspondante dans l’autre pays. La première partie préconise d’établir des règles permettant de contrer les asymétries des régimes fiscaux concernant des paiements effectués au titre d’un instrument financier hybride ou effectués par une entité hybride ou en sa faveur. Elle recommande aussi d’adopter des règles qui ciblent les asymétries indirectes qui surviennent lorsque les effets d’un dispositif hybride sont importés dans un pays tiers. Ces recommandations s’accompagnent de commentaires et d’exemples qui illustrent comment elles doivent être appliquées. La deuxième partie du rapport décrit les modifications proposées au Modèle de Convention fiscale pour faire en sorte que les avantages des conventions fiscales soient octroyés aux entités hybrides (y compris aux entités à double résidence) uniquement lorsque les circonstances s’y prêtent. Cette partie examine également les interactions entre le Modèle de Convention fiscale de l’OCDE et les recommandations relatives au droit interne qui font l’objet de la première partie.

    États de fragilité 2016 - Comprendre la violence

    La violence progresse, et elle survient là où on ne l’attend pas. Ces 15 dernières années, elle a touché 3.34 milliards d’individus, soit près de la moitié de la population de la planète. Si le nombre de conflits violents régresse, davantage d’individus meurent à cause de conflits. Les violences qui transparaissent dans les conflits armés, dans le nombre de tués et dans les flux de réfugiés sont à leur niveau le plus élevé depuis plus de 20 ans. L’extrémisme violent et le terrorisme sont eux aussi en hausse. De surcroît, le coût économique de la violence s’alourdit : l’impact économique mondial de la violence atteint le chiffre impressionnant de 13 600 milliards USD, soit l’équivalent de 13.3 % du PIB mondial. Et les personnes les plus exposées à la violence sont les civils, en particulier les enfants et les femmes.

    États de fragilité 2016 : Comprendre la violence examine de très près la violence dans le monde – et ce qu’il faudrait faire face à ce phénomène. Ce rapport met en lumière les dernières réflexions sur la violence, présente une nouvelle approche fondée sur les risques permettant le suivi des différentes dimensions de la fragilité et étudie les flux financiers destinés aux contextes de fragilité. Il ressort de ce rapport que les efforts déployés en matière de développement, de paix et de sécurité dans le monde en développement n’ont pas été suffisants au regard de la nouvelle réalité de la violence. Il nous faut consacrer davantage de ressources et d’attention à la lutte contre la violence. Et si nous voulons être efficaces, il nous faut mettre les individus, et en particulier les jeunes, au centre de nos efforts.

    Accrual Practices and Reform Experiences in OECD Countries

    Financial reporting is one of the foundations of good fiscal management. High-quality financial reports are essential to ensure that a government’s fiscal decisions are based on the most up-to-date and accurate understanding of its financial position. Financial reports are also the mechanism through which legislatures, auditors, and the public at large hold governments accountable for their financial performance. Over the past two decades, a growing number of governments have begun moving away from pure cash accounting toward accrual accounting to improve transparency and accountability and better inform fiscal decision making. This study reviews and compares accounting and budgeting practices at the national government level in OECD countries. It also discusses both the challenges and benefits of accruals reforms. Finally, it looks at some steps countries are taking to make better use of accrual information in the future. This is a joint publication with the International Federation of Accountants and the OECD.

    Public Private Partnerships for Transport Infrastructure - Renegotiation and Economic Outcomes

    Public-private partnerships (PPPs) are an important vehicle for private participation in infrastructure investment, delivery and management. Renegotiations are an integral part of the PPP process but their prevalence varies markedly in different parts of the world. Renegotiations can be usefully employed to adjust the PPP contract to unforeseeable events, beyond the control of contractual parties. There is also a danger, however, that they will be used to change the initial balance of costs and benefits in the contract.
    The purpose of this report was to provide an overview of the nature of PPP renegotiations in different regions of the world and at different times to help understand when PPP contract renegotiations are desirable and when they are not. In general it is concluded that when contracts are set up well, renegotiations should be few and far between.

    Energy Policies of IEA Countries: Poland 2016

    Coal dominates the power sector of Poland, where it is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions as well as a major employer. Whether coal continues to fuel the economy over the longer term will be one of the central issues addressed in an update to Poland’s long-term energy strategy, which is expected in 2017.

    The country’s new energy plan will prioritise long-term energy security, placing a strong emphasis on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, increasing energy efficiency and decarbonising the transport system. Nuclear power could play a significant role in the country’s energy supply. While the country has experienced strong growth in renewable energy over the past decade, the future looks uncertain.

    Given these possible changes, the new energy strategy will require significant investments to reduce the share of carbon-intensive power plants and increase the share of low-carbon energy. While Polish energy infrastructure has been modernised, further investments are needed to strengthen integration with neighbouring markets.

    In this context, this latest IEA review of the energy policies of Poland examines the present landscape and makes recommendations for further improvements – recommendations that are intended to guide the country towards a more secure and sustainable energy future.
