OECD Green Growth Strategy Workshop: we asked Nathalie Girouard, the Green Growth Strategy Co-ordinator, for her views on some of the topics being discussed.
To ensure that green growth policy recommendations are relevant to countries’ needs, the OECD organised a consultation to review the first draft of the Synthesis Report on 10-11 February 2011.
At this roundtable, M. Gurría concluded that the topic of fairness and intergenerational solidarity is an essential part of our responsibility today and will be essential for the creation of a stronger, cleaner, fairer world economy tomorrow.
This meeting explored the role of policy in addressing issues related to climate change, agriculture and land use, both in the context of GHG mitigation and of farmer adaptation to climate change.
The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is an important policy for the European Union and accounts for about 40% of the EU budget. Ever since its inception in 1958, the CAP has been regularly reviewed and adjusted to improve its performance and adapt to changing circumstances. At a time when the post-2013 future of the CAP is being discussed and major challenges such as food security and climate change lay ahead, it is important to
Climate change will affect fisheries, fish stocks and coastal communities. Fisheries policymakers must strengthen global governance, use a rights-based management system, protect ecosystems, end environmentally harmful subsidies and focus on demand for sustainably caught seafood.
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.

From an economic point of view, the changes will have impacts on fisheries and coastal communities in different ways. These expected changes require adaptable and flexible fisheries and aquaculture management policies and governance frameworks. However, the forms of future climate change and
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.
