Policy Coherence and Green Growth

image of Better Policies for Development 2015

In 2015, as the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) come to an end, the international community is embarking on a new global framework for sustainable development. The international community, including the OECD and its members, will need to adapt its policy instruments and working methods to successfully achieve the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030. This report contributes to this process by introducing the concept of Policy Coherence for Sustainable Development (PCSD), along with a proposal for monitoring coherence.

Better Policies for Development 2015 provides an overview of the core actions involved in aligning separate – and sometimes opposing – policy objectives, as well as managing potential trade-offs and synergies between them. In particular, it applies a policy coherence lens to green growth, as one of the priority areas for policy coherence identified in the OECD Strategy on Development.

The report includes numerous contributions from intellectuals, member states and civil society.

Foreword

The 2015 edition of Better Policies for Development comes at a critical time. In 2015 – the target year of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) – the international community is forging a new global framework for sustainable development. The post-2015 development agenda offers an unprecedented opportunity to make extreme poverty history; to place the world on a sustainable development path; and to ensure well-being and prosperity for all while protecting the planet.
