Sustainable development depends on long-term investments in human capital, of which the female half is being marginalised the world over.

Sustainable agriculture depends on coherent policies for rural development, land, drought, desertification, Africa and the agricultural sector itself. 

Widening energy access in LDCs, increasing energy R&D, promoting energy efficiency, and addressing energy-related climate change issues are among the approaches needed.

This Policy Brief looks at progress towards sustainable development in the OECD and its member countries, and at what more can be done to advance sustainable development in the Organisation’s work and policy discussions.

 

National sustainable development strategies should start at the top, aim at the long-term, and integrate several policy areas.
