“Strong climate action is not a threat to, but the foundation of, our future economic well-being”.
Angel Gurría – OECD Secretary-General

Climate change is increasingly impacting on people’s lives, disrupting national economies and transforming ecosystems, including the ocean. The need for urgent, strong and co-operative action based on mutual trust and understanding has never been higher. Similarly, it is vital that countries strengthen their ability to understand, plan for and continuously manage climate risks.

The OECD is playing an active role. As well as supporting the international climate negotiations over many years, the OECD has increased its efforts to help countries to deliver on their national and international climate commitments and contributions. OECD work focuses on the environmental, economic, financial and social dimensions that are critical to the creation of low-emissions, climate-resilient development pathways.
