OECD Environmental Performance Reviews (EPRs) provide independent, evidence-based assessments of countries’ progress towards their environmental objectives. They offer recommendations to support countries in their efforts to strengthen policies that contribute to environmental goals. EPRs facilitate peer-to-peer learning, encouraging countries to improve their environmental performance both individually and collectively.
Working with over 100 countries, the OECD is a global policy forum that promotes policies to preserve individual liberty and improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
