The limits for extraction of natural resources have largely been reached and climate change is expected to continue lowering natural water endowments markedly in future especially in dry areas of the country
Many fish stocks need rebuilding, but economic and social factors are also important for sustainable fisheries. This paper discusses the important distinction between rebuilding stocks and rebuilding fisheries, and the use of bioeconomic modelling for developing rebuilding strategies.
What should policy makers do to address climate change? This working paper looks at approaches to managing fisheries, so that the sector can adapt to changing conditions.
This paper presents a number of meta-analyses of the value of a statistical life in stated preferences surveys, and is an input to a technical report and a user's guide for policy makers on the use of VSL values in policy assessments that is being prepared.
This paper gives a technical description of meta-analyses that have been made of estimates of the value of a statistical life in stated preferences surveys, and is an input to a user's guide for policy makers on the use of VSL values in policy assessments that is being prepared.
To mark the final report of the UN High Level Advisory Group on Climate Change Financing (AGF), OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría wrote an op-ed entitled “Closing the Gap on Climate Finance” for Danish business newspaper Børsen on 7th November 2010.
This working paper provides evidence on the generation and international diffusion of selected climate change mitigation technologies (CCMTs) and their respective links to key policies.
In his remarks, A. Gurría said that countries need to be ambitious in taking unilateral actions and that a cost-effective approach to reducing emissions could cost just a fraction of a percentage point of GDP per year.
OECD’s modelling work supports governments in identifying least-cost policies or policy mixes to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and assesses the cost and impacts of possible post-2012 international frameworks.
“We must be able to grow our economy in ways that the earth can sustain. That means growth without carbon and using the earth’s amazing larder of natural resources in ways that keep ecosystems healthy.” says WWF chief James P. Leape
