OECD Environmental Performance Reviews: Turkey 2008

image of OECD Environmental Performance Reviews: Turkey 2008

This edition of OECD's periodic review of Turkey's environmental policy finds that Turkey has achieved consolidation of environmental progress and its environmental legislation is increasingly incorporating the EU environmental aquis. But pollution, energy, and resource intensities still need to be reduced and environmentally related health problems need to be addressed. This review systematically looks at air, water, nature and biodiversity, the environmental-economic interface, the environmental-social interface, and international co-operation, making 45 specific recommendations.

Conclusions and Recommendations

This report examines Turkey’s progress since the previous OECD Environmental Performance Review in 1999 and the extent to which the country has met its national objectives and international commitments regarding the management of the environment and natural resources. The report also reviews Turkey’s progress in the context of the OECD Environmental Strategy,** and compares to the recommendations of the 1999 OECD review. Progress has stemmed from environmental and economic decisions and actions by national and territorial authorities, as well as by enterprises, households and nongovernmental organisations. 45 recommendations are made that could contribute to further environmental progress in Turkey.
