OECD Environmental Performance Reviews provide independent assessments of countries’ progress towards their environmental policy objectives. Reviews promote peer learning, enhance government accountability, and provide targeted recommendations aimed at improving environmental performance, individually and collectively. They are supported by a broad range of economic and environmental data, and evidence-based analysis. Each cycle of Environmental Performance Reviews covers all OECD countries and selected partner economies.

This report is the second Environmental Performance Review of Chile. It evaluates progress towards sustainable development and green growth, with a focus on climate change and biodiversity conservation and sustainable use.

Towards green growth

An export-oriented and natural-resource based economy, Chile experienced strong economic growth for most of the 2000-15 period. The national Green Growth Strategy is being revamped with a view to better balancing economic, environmental and equity considerations. This chapter presents Chile’s progress in using economic and tax policies to pursue environmental objectives. It analyses public and private investment in environment-related and low-carbon infrastructure, and reviews the promotion of environmental technologies, goods and services as a source of economic growth and jobs. The role of Chile as both a recipient and provider of environment-focused development assistance is also discussed.
