OECD ENVIRONMENT PLAN


Item #d91mar89

Environment ministers of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development adopted resolutions emphasizing global environmental protection at their Paris meeting in January, including a strong endorsement of economic instruments such as taxes, charges and tradable permits. They advocate a three-part approach in the coming decade: integrating economic and environmental decision making; improving environmental performance within the member countries; and strengthening international cooperation with nonmember countries, especially developing countries and those in Eastern and Central Europe undergoing transition to a market economy. OECD, which represents 24 of the leading industrial democracies, also released a major assessment on the state of the environment. (See Reports/International, this Global Climate Change Digest issue--Mar. 1991.) Intl. Environ. Rptr., Feb. 13, 1991, contains an article on the meeting (pp. 68-69) as well as the full resolution adopted (pp. 87-91).
