OECD Global Forum on Environment
The OECD provides governments with analysis to support the development of biodiversity policies that are economically efficient, environmentally effective and distributionally equitable. Policy analysis by the OECD focuses on the economic valuation of biodiversity and ecosystem services, and the use of economic instruments, incentives, and other policy measures to promote the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and associated ecosystem services. This work also supports the Convention on Biological Diversity.
The theme of OECD Global Forum on Environment is “Mainstreaming Biodiversity and Development”.
OECD Global Forum on Environment (GFENV) is a venue that brings together international experts from member and non-member economies to share experiences and explore common policy issues focusing principally on the environmental dimension of sustainable development and its linkages with economic and social policies. Issues to be addressed in the Global Forum on Environment are shaped based on the current work of the OECD Environment Programme, by focusing on one or two priority issues on the global environmental agenda each year.The objective of the forum are:
- Raise awareness and understanding of the environment dimension of sustainable development issues worldwide;
- Facilitate information-sharing on environmental issues among policy makers, private sector actors and civil society representatives;
- Promote exchange of information and lessons learned among OECD and non-OECD countries
