    Boîte à outils pour des politiques et la gouvernance de l’eau - Converger vers la Recommandation du Conseil de l’OCDE sur l’eau

    La boîte à outils recense des politiques, des modes de gouvernance et des instruments qui facilitent la conception et la mise en œuvre d’une gestion de l’eau en phase avec la Recommandation du Conseil de l’OCDE sur l’eau. Elle a été conçue pour inspirer et encourager les pays qui ont adhéré, souhaitent adhérer ou veulent converger vers le standard de l’OCDE. La Recommandation a été adoptée à l’unanimité du Conseil de l’OCDE en décembre 2016. Cette adoption fut le résultat d’une consultation qui a duré deux ans, avec les délégués des ministères en charge de l’agriculture, de l’aide au développement, de l’environnement, de la gouvernance publique, du développement régional et des politiques de régulation. Les parties prenantes (entreprises, syndicats de salariés et association environnementale) ont également été consultées, ainsi que les membres de l’initiative de l’OCDE sur la gouvernance de l’eau. La Recommandation propose un standard international qui offre des orientations pratiques de haut niveau sur un ensemble de sujets pertinents pour la gestion de la ressource et les services liés à l’eau. Ces sujets comprennent la gestion de la quantité, les risques et catastrophes liés à l’eau, l’amélioration de la qualité, la gouvernance de l’eau, ainsi qu’un financement durable, l’investissement et la tarification des services liés à l’eau. Les pratiques qui figurent dans la boite à outils ont été compilées par le Secrétariat de l’OCDE, en concertation étroite avec les pays qui ont adhéré à la Recommandation. Elles seront régulièrement mises à jour.

    Monitoring, evaluation and learning for climate risk management

    This working paper focuses on the role of monitoring, evaluation and learning (MEL) for promoting effective climate risk management. It aims to introduce a conceptual framework that governments and development co-operation providers can draw on when developing MEL frameworks for their interventions on climate risk management. The paper also presents existing methods and tools to address the technical challenges to developing such MEL frameworks. Further, it provides examples of good practice for adjusting or updating existing MEL frameworks in support of climate risk management. It contributes to the project Strengthening Climate Resilience: Guidance for Governments and Development Co-operation of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).

    Strengthening Climate Resilience - Guidance for Governments and Development Co-operation

    This guidance provides a tool governments and development co-operation can draw on in their efforts to strengthen the resilience of human and natural systems to the impacts of climate change. It highlights three aspirations to consider when planning and implementing action to build climate resilience (country ownership; inclusiveness; and environmental and social sustainability). The guidance also outlines four mechanisms (governance; sector-level approaches; finance; and monitoring, evaluation and learning) and three enablers (data and information; capacity; and technologies) in support of climate resilience, proposing concrete actions in the form of checklists.

    Policy scenarios for a transition to a more resource efficient and circular economy

    Global materials use is expected to grow in the coming decades in the absence of new policies, bearing substantial negative impacts for the environment. This report analyses the mechanisms through which resource efficiency and circular economy policies can achieve a decoupling between economic growth and material use. Using the OECD’s ENV-Linkages model, the report examines the economic and environmental impacts of a global material fiscal reform, which implements taxes on primary metal and mineral resources, and uses the revenue of these taxes to finance subsidies to recycled goods and to secondary metal production.

    International trade and circular economy - Policy alignment

    Circular economy policies and initiatives largely take place domestically, and yet they have important interlinkages with international trade. This report explores how to make circular economy policies and trade policies mutually supportive by mapping out potential misalignments and identifying opportunities to align and strengthen both policy areas. The report highlights the various interlinkages between international trade and circular economy, and examines the interactions between trade and circular economy at the policy level, focussing on the multilateral trade regime and regional trade agreements, as well as specific policies to promote the circular economy, such as extended producer responsibility and product stewardship schemes, taxes and subsidies, green public procurement, environmental labelling schemes, and standards.

    Green Budget Tagging - Introductory Guidance & Principles

    Green budget tagging can be a useful tool in an overall approach to green budgeting. This introductory guidance was developed by the OECD under the Paris Collaborative on Green Budgeting in collaboration with institutional partners working under Helsinki Principle 4 of the Coalition of Finance Ministers for Climate Action (IADB, IMF, UNDP, World Bank) and draws lessons from existing country practices. It was informed by a series of round-table events with countries implementing green budget tagging. The document aims to provide high-level guidance in relation to designing, implementing and improving green budget tagging.
