Far-reaching innovation is needed to address climate change and other environmental challenges, and to accelerate the transition to green growth. To measure the output of environmental innovation, the OECD published a new set of green patent indicators.
The consequences of degradation of environmental quality as well as the consequences of environmental policies are typically unevenly distributed. In general, poorer countries and lower income households are more severely affected by environmental degradation and at the same time have less capacity to adapt.
Le 9 Décembre 2015, à la COP21, Myriam Linster, Aldo Ravazzi, Guillaume Sainteny et Simon Upton partiront de graphiques clés de publications de l'OCDE pour replacer le climat dans un contexte environnemental et politique plus large. Le webinaire est accessible à tous en ligne.
Pour chacun des 34 pays membres de l'OCDE, les profils de pays fournissent une "photo instantanée" dans des domaines politiques clés. Les graphiques intéractifs montrent les indicateurs sur la qualité de l'air, la biodiversité, le changement climatique, les ressources en énergie, des forêts et de l'eau, la production de déchets, la qualité de l'eau et les taxes liées à l'environnement.
"Back to the Future" festivities marking 21 October 2015 as the date Marty and Doc travel to the future in the famous film with Michael J. Fox. If only we had a similar time machine allowing us to travel to 2045 to see what the climate has in store to better decide what policies to adopt today. Alas, no time machine has been invented yet but, in the absence of such a cool device, we can rely on climate and economic models...
This report develops an analytical framework that assesses the macroeconomic, environmental and distributional consequences of energy subsidy reforms. The framework is applied to the case of Indonesia to study the consequences in this country of a gradual phase out of all energy consumption subsidies between 2012 and 2020.

This brochure provides an overview of the OECD work on economy-environment modelling.
This report focuses on households’ behaviour in relation to water use, and presents the results of follow-up analysis of the 2011 OECD Survey on Environmental Policy and Individual Behaviour Change (EPIC) where econometric techniques are applied.
This paper presents a framework to include feedbacks from climate impacts on the economy in integrated assessment models. The proposed framework uses a production function approach, which links climate impacts to key variables and parameters used in the specification of economic activity. The paper pays particular attention to the challenges of distinguishing between damages and the costs of adapting to climate change.
