Climate Change Mitigation. What Do We Do?

by the OECD

- Climate change and its impact on our environment, our economies and our security, is the defining issue of our era. But every day of inaction makes its consequences more irreversible, so we need to act now. This publication summarises recent OECD analyses and it strengthens the main OECD message: that an ambitious and comprehensive strategy to curb greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is economically rational. It provides arguments to help policy-makers explain why postponing decisions, using the current economic circumstances as an excuse, is a short-sighted policy.
