The Future of Productivity

The slowdown in productivity over the past decade has added to concerns about the long-term economic outlook.  But new OECD research shows that policy reforms can revive the diffusion of innovation and make better use of human talent to clear the path for higher and more inclusive productivity growth.

Environmental Outlook to 2050: the consequences of inaction

Humanity has witnessed unprecedented growth and prosperity in the past decades, with the size of the world economy more than tripling and population increasing by over 3 billion people since 1970. This growth, however, has been accompanied by environmental pollution and natural resource depletion. The current growth model and the mismanagement of natural assets could ultimately undermine human development. Read more

 

Energy Technology Perspectives 2015 - Mobilising Innovation to Accelerate Climate Action

As climate negotiators work towards a deal that would limit the increase in global temperatures, interest is growing in the essential role technology innovation can and must play in enabling the transition to a low-carbon energy system. Indeed, recent success stories clearly indicate that there is significant and untapped potential for accelerating innovation in clean technologies if proper policy frameworks are in place.

The Future of Families to 2030

Since the 1960s the family in the OECD area has undergone significant transformation. In many countries, the extended family has all but disappeared, and the traditional two-parent family has become much less widespread as divorce rates, re-marriages, cohabitation, single parenthood and same-sex partnerships have all increased.  With rising migration, cultures and values have become more diverse, with some ethnic minorities evolving as parallel family cultures while others intermingle with mainstream cultures through mixed-race marriages.

Boosting resilience through innovative risk management
‌‌Large-scale natural and human-induced disasters have generated over USD 1.5 trillion in economic damages over the last decade in OECD and BRIC countries. Single events have exceeded damages worth 20% of annual GDP. Resilience of OECD countries is particularly challenged during times of economic downturns, above all in countries that rely on state budgets for post-disaster loss financing. Read more
 
 
 
The future of science, technology and innovation policies
This chapter describes recent developments and the outlook for science, technology and innovation (STI) and STI policies. As economic growth gains momentum, STI activities should increase. However, the recovery remains uneven. The crisis caused lasting damage to public finances, creating a “new deal” for STI policies, which must consider the risks and opportunities raised by the continuing globalisation of STI activities.

Building a Government for the Future: Improving policy performance and managing complex challenges
These notes provide background for the Committee Symposium policy discussions. They include references to the questions for discussion in each of the respective sessions. They benefited from a recent OECD Survey from Centres of Government, and draw from the work of the OECD High Level Risk Forum as well as from Senior Budgeting Officials. They also involve a selective stocktaking of recent academic and policy research in areas of policy coordination and foresight. Read more
