    OECD work on air pollution

    Air pollution is the world’s leading environmental health risk and a major cause of environmental degradation. As the main environmental trigger for premature death globally, it is vital to tackle air pollution while also finding sustainable ways to cope with the pressures of economic activity. Find out how the OECD supports policy makers in their decision-making.

    The Economic Benefits of Air Quality Improvements in Arctic Council Countries

    The Arctic is a vital region that helps preserve the balance of the global climate. The Arctic environment is particularly sensitive to short-lived climate pollutants, including black carbon, due to their strong warming effect. With ambitious policy action to reduce air pollutants, Arctic Council countries would obtain a positive effect on health and the environment throughout their territory, while also helping to slow down climate change by reducing emissions of black carbon. This report calls for ambitious policy action to reduce air pollution in Arctic Council countries, highlighting the environmental, health, and economic benefits from policy action.

    Blog: Can modelling help better understand the transition to a more circular economy?

    This blog highlights how large-scale modelling can shed light on the detailed interactions between economic activity and materials use, and how policies can change those links to ensure a more circular future where economic growth does not have to mean increased materials use.

    Assessment of Investment Needs for Climate Action in Armenia

    Estimates of how much countries need to invest to reach their climate targets can support their budget planning and their capital raising strategies. Comprehensive assessments of investment needs for climate action up to 2030 and beyond are missing in the South Caucasus countries as well as in most OECD member countries. The OECD has estimated investment costs in gross fixed assets for around 50 climate-related actions in Armenia.

    Towards common GHG inventory reporting tables for Biennial Transparency Reports - Experiences with tools for generating and using reporting tables under the UNFCCC

    Under the Enhanced Transparency Framework (ETF) of the Paris Agreement, Parties will be required to report information on national GHG inventories using a set of Common Reporting Tables (CRTs). The CRTs can provide an important source of data at the international and national levels. While a final set of tables has not yet been agreed upon, there is an emerging convergence around the view that the Common Reporting Format (CRF) tables that Annex I Parties currently use to report national GHG inventories could serve as a starting point for the development of CRTs. To support ongoing discussions, this paper provides details on the structure and functions of the existing CRF tables and the CRF Reporter software used to generate the tables, as well as some countries’ experiences with using this current system. To facilitate the transition towards reporting using CRTs, the paper also provides an overview of other tools that could support countries in reporting GHG inventories through CRTs and outlines a set of key issues that could be considered in the transparency negotiations. The paper concludes that the use of CRF tables and a CRF Reporter reduces the reporting burden on Parties – and that this could also be a significant benefit of CRTs and a CRT reporter. The paper also highlights that countries’ experience shows that effective IT arrangements can facilitate the reporting process but that as developing countries have no prior experience with the use of CRF tables and the CRF Reporter, the transition to a new CRT system may need capacity-building support, including for setting up suitable IT arrangements.
