By oecd publishing

The OECD Environmental Outlook to 2030 presents analyses of financial and environmental traits to 2030, and simulations of coverage activities to deal with the foremost demanding situations. with out new guidelines, we probability irreversibly destructive the surroundings and the common source base had to aid fiscal progress and health. the prices of coverage inactiveness are excessive. however the Outlook exhibits that tackling the major environmental difficulties we are facing this day -- together with weather swap, biodiversity loss, water shortage and the well-being affects of pollutants -- is either possible and cheap. It highlights a mixture of guidelines which could handle those demanding situations in an economical approach. the focal point of this Outlook is extended from the 2001 version to mirror advancements in either OECD international locations and Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, China, South Africa (BRIICS), and the way they could greater co-operate on international and native environmental problem-solving. desk of content material : Acronyms and Abbreviations govt precis advent: Context and method half I.

Research capacity, intellectual property rights) by providing the right incentives and using complementarities between instruments. Market-based instruments and well-designed performance standards broaden the potential space for innovation. Firms’ investments in environmental R&D increase with the flexibility of the environmental policy instrument. g. an energy tax) along with information-based instruments, to tackle households’ growing environmental impact. ● Address equity concerns through general policy reforms, rather than through changes in the design of environmental policy.

Increasingly, production-linked payments are conditional on farmers adopting certain practices to reduce environmental harm. While such “cross-compliance” can help to reduce some of the negative environmental impacts of agricultural production, a more effective approach would be to remove environmentally harmful subsidies in the first place. Taxes on farm chemicals also help limit their use, while appropriate pricing of irrigation water would encourage more rational use of water and cost-recovery for irrigation infrastructure provision.
