OECD Work on Environment

17 February 2020 Heather Dailey Author avatar


The OECD is one of the world’s largest and most reliable sources of comparable statistical,
economic and social data. It monitors trends, collects data, analyses and forecasts economic
development, and investigates evolving patterns in a broad range of public policy areas such as
agriculture, development co-operation, education, employment, taxation and trade, science,
technology, industry and innovation, in addition to environment. The OECD family of organisations also includes the International Energy Agency (IEA), the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) and the International Transport Forum (ITF).

This report covers how the OECD is helping governments face up to cross-cutting, systemic challenges in a more comprehensive manner that is increasingly joining the dots
between environment, growth and equity.

The following are just a few of the environmental issues the OECD covers in 2019 and 2020 to reveal both the consequences of inaction and the solutions for the future using Environmental performance reviews, information, data and indicators: Climate change, biodiversity and ecosystems, the ocean, water, nitrogen management environmental policies and outcomes, green growth, green mobility and transport, chemical safety and waste.
