This working paper reviews different approaches to making the economic case for improved management of natural capital in national planning. In many low-income countries natural resources sectors (agriculture, mining, forestry, fishery) are identified as the engines of economic growth.

This volume is the eleventh in the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) “Chemical Thermodynamics” series. It is based on a critical review of the thermodynamic properties of thorium, its solid compounds and aqueous complexes, initiated as part of the NEA Thermochemical Database Project Phase III (TDB III). The database system developed at the OECD/NEA Data Bank ensures consistency not only within the recommended data sets of thorium,

The key objectives of the conference were to exchange experiences on the good practices and trends in environmental compliance assurance in OECD countries and major emerging economies based on the draft project report; and agree on a limited number of emerging compliance assurance issues.
Trade in fish does not lead to a decline in food security and availability of fish for the population of developing countries, according to this study of industrial and small-scale fisheries in the economy of Sub-Sahara Africa.
This report presents three case studies to illustrate the relationship between environmental policy and technological innovation.
This comprehensive review offers an analysis of Indonesia’s energy sector, with findings and recommendations that draw on experience in IEA member countries. Six areas are suggested for priority attention, including progressive reduction in fuel and electricity subsidies, better implementation of policy, improving clarity of the investment framework, helping the energy regulators do their job more effectively, and harnessing a
Oil, coal and natural gas will remain the world’s dominant sources of energy over the next decades, with resulting carbon dioxide emissions set to increase to unsustainable levels. However, technologies that help reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels can reverse this trend. CO2 capture and storage (CCS) is particularly promising. CCS takes CO2 from large stationary sources and stores it in deep
World energy demand continues to grow unabated and is leading to very serious concerns about security of supply, soaring energy prices and climate change stemming from fossil fuel consumption. Nuclear energy is being increasingly seen as having a role to play in addressing these concerns. Responding to renewed interest in nuclear energy, this Nuclear Energy Outlook uses the most current data and statistics available and
