About the Organisation for Economic Co‑operation and Development OECD Publishing is responsible for disseminating the content of the OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) whose mission is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. The OECD brings governments together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. We don’t just work with governments, but also with business, labour, academia and other civil society organisations to understand what drives economic, social and environmental change. We analyse and compare data to predict future trends. We set international standards on numerous issues, from the safety of chemicals to the quality of cucumbers. We look, too, at issues that directly affect the lives of ordinary people, like how much they pay in taxes and social security. We compare how different countries’ school systems are readying their young people for modern life, and how different countries’ pension systems will look after their citizens in old age.This information is published in books, journals and data services. All of them are available via our global knowledge base, OECD iLibrary (www.oecd-ilibrary.org). The OECD is one of the most innovative publishers in its field and one of the most prolific and reliable sources of comparable economic and social data. OECD Core Values • • • • • 2

Objective: Our analyses and recommendations are independent and evidence-based. Open: We encourage debate and a shared understanding of critical global issues. Bold: We dare to challenge conventional wisdom starting with our own. Pioneering: We identify and address emerging and long‑term challenges. Ethical: Our credibility is built on trust, integrity and transparency.

Better Policies for Better Lives: The OECD at 50 and Beyond

Anniversaries are moments for looking back and looking forward. The 50th Anniversary of the OECD is an opportunity to reaffirm what we stand for and what we are about. Since 1961, the OECD has been a policy advisor and pathfinder on important issues for our member countries. Evidence-based policy guidance such as our Jobs Strategy, our Programme for International Students Assessment (PISA), held in more than 70 countries, and our economic country studies have helped policy makers and stakeholders to pursue their reform agenda. Our pioneering work on climate change and the use of economic instruments to reach environmental goals provides useful tools to bring “green” and “growth” together. Over the past five decades the OECD has also become a global standard setter. Our Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, our Global Forum for Transparency and Information Exchange for Tax Purposes, our Anti-Bribery Convention and our monitoring of aid flows are just a few examples of the ways in which we help to develop high international rules of the game in the interests of a stronger, cleaner and fairer world economy.

4


The OECD has also proven that it is a relevant arena to discuss global challenges and to find common solutions. Today, as the global economic landscape changes and we build the new institutional architecture of global governance, the OECD will become even more important: through our contributions to the G20 in the fields of strong, sustainable and balanced growth, employment and skills, trade and investment, price volatility, food security, taxation, innovation, anti-corruption and development. But also through a more open, inclusive OECD, briging on board new members and defining a new partnership with emerging economies and working increasingly with and for developing countries. The OECD will continue to ensure that the well-being of citizens remains at the centre of our concerns. After 50 years, our objective is and remains to help member and partner country governments to formulate and implement better policies for better lives. Angel GurrĂ­a Secretary-General Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)

OECD Better Life Index For fifty years the OECD has been driving better policies for better lives. At its 50th Anniversary, the OECD is launching the Better Life Initiative, a web portal enabling users to visualise progress graphically. By asking the question “How’s life?” across 11 fundamental determinants of well-being, the OECD incorporates the quality of citizens’ lives into a common understanding of progress. Each user can create their own Better Life Index, comparing well-being in their country to that of others, and their country’s overall performance with their personal priorities. By using this instrument, they also discover how each of the 11 factors affects quality of life overall, and learn about the best policy practices in these areas.

Since 1967, the OECD Economic Outlook has been providing readers with detailed information on recent economic developments in OECD countries and selected other countries as well as short-term projections for many frequently requested economic variables. In addition, each issue includes analytical chapters addressing issues of current interest. This issue includes chapters covering the persistence of high unemployment, capital flows, and a 50th Anniversary chapter titled Shifting Paradigms. Each issue of the OECD Economic Outlook also includes an extensive Statistical Annex, providing 15-year time series for more than 50 frequently requested economic variables. It therefore serves as a heavily-used reference tool for those interested in the international economy.

The OECD Green Growth Strategy aims to provide concrete recommendations and measurement tools to support countries’ efforts to achieve economic growth and development, while at the same time ensure that natural assets continue to provide the ecosystem services on which our well-being relies. The Strategy proposes a flexible policy framework that can be tailored to different country circumstances and stages of development. This synthesis report contains key policy insights and practical recommendations to help governments design and implement policies that can shift their economies onto greener growth paths. It is complemented by the report “Towards Green Growth: Monitoring Progress – OECD Indicators”.

The Millennium Development Goals set an ambitious target: to halve the number of people living in absolute poverty by 2015. That target may be met but many other MDGs will likely be missed, thus leaving the world with a development challenge beyond that which it had hoped to face. This book examines the scale of that challenge, and the role of development aid in helping to meet it. It shows that while development aid can help combat poverty and build foundations for economic growth, it is no magic bullet. For one thing, it is just one small part of the financial flows to developing economies. For another, the contexts of aid – for example, donors’ intentions and recipients’ quality of governance – help determine whether or not it works. This book also looks at the evolution of the aid relationship – from donor-recipient to development partners – as well as the aid-effectiveness debate and the potential impact of South-South co-operation on the development agenda.

Future Global Shocks is an in-depth examination of how major disruptive events such as pandemics, financial crises, critical infrastructure failure and civic unrest can spread through economic and social systems. Often events begin as small local events, but their impacts may rapidly propagate across national frontiers and turn into major international crises. Building on analyses of episodes such as the avian and swine flu outbreaks, the recent financial market meltdown, and cyber-attacks on government and industrial IT networks, the report explores the driving forces behind potential global shocks of the future. It examines the strengths and weaknesses of current approaches to the management of global shocks, and sets out proposals that aim to improve the resilience of economic and social systems to such damaging disruptions.

Going for Growth 2011 highlights the structural reforms needed to restore long-term growth in the wake of the crisis. For each OECD country and, for the first time, six key emerging economies (Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia and South Africa), five reform priorities are identified that would be most effective in delivering sustained growth over the next decade. The analysis shows that many of these reforms could also assist much-needed fiscal consolidation and contribute to reducing global current account imbalances. The internationally comparable indicators provided enable countries to assess their economic performance and structural policies in a wide range of areas. In addition, this issue contains three analytical chapters covering housing policies, the efficiency of health care systems and the links between structural policies and current account imbalances.

This is the seventeenth edition of the Agricultural Outlook and the seventh co-edition prepared jointly with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). This report provides world market trends for biofuels, cereals, oilseeds, sugar, meats, dairy products and, for the first time, the fisheries sector over the 2011-20 period. This edition also includes an evaluation of recent developments, key issues and uncertainties in those commodity markets. The projections are the result of close co-operation with national experts in OECD and non-OECD countries. A jointly developed modelling system, based on the OECD’s AGLINK and on the FAO’s COSIMO models, facilitates consistency in the projections. In the context of the G20 discussions on agriculture, a section of the report is devoted this year to the policy responses to price volatility.

Increasingly, overall support to farmers is being driven by changes on world markets. After an increase in 2009, producer support in the OECD area declined to the lowest level since the mid-1980s and confirms the downward trend in support to farmers in the OECD area. The trend in emerging economies shows some increase in the level of support, although it stays well below the OECD average.

AgriCuLTurE

This report covers for the first time both the OECD member countries (including the new members who joined during 2010 – Chile, Estonia, Israel and Slovenia) and selected key emerging economies: Brazil, China, Russia, South Africa and Ukraine. It is a unique source of up-to-date estimates of support to agriculture.

This report shows that the decline has largely been due to a narrowing of the gap between domestic and world agricultural commodity prices, which were buoyant in 2010.Progress has been made in decoupling support from production, but production-linked support is still significant. There are wide variations in the levels and composition of support across OECD countries, while the variations among emerging economies are less pronounced.

As part of the OECD Green Growth Strategy, this new series aims to provide in-depth reviews of the green growth issues faced by different sectors. The agriculture and fisheries sectors have an important role to play in contributing to greener growth, in particular through facilitating the uptake of green technologies and management practices and reducing waste in the food chain. This will involve a range of policies, including: the reform of environmentally harmful subsidies that distort efficient resource use; freer international trade; shifting towards targeted policies that will support poor and vulnerable farmers; rewarding the provision of ecosystem services; and encouraging R&D, technologies and management practices that improve the productivity of resource use. Framing appropriate “greening” policies is also a major governance issue which requires examining the incentives and disincentives generated by policies, as well as the regulatory and institutional framework more broadly.

Agriculture and Food examines the state of world agriculture today and discusses the major forces shaping its future, including trade, the environment, government policy, and farming practices themselves. It looks at how social change and economic conditions influence how food is produced, what we eat and where we buy it. It also examines the question of food security, and the links between poverty and hunger.

AgriCuLTurE

Global food production has outpaced population growth for the last 50 years, and will have to double by 2050 to feed the projected population of 9 billion people. Experience suggests it can be done, but the agriculture and food sector is facing a number of challenges. Economic growth is being accompanied by a shift to resource-intensive Western-style diets worldwide. Farming has to cope with environmental pressures and competition for land from other uses. Climate change introduces new uncertainties.

“Shifting wealth” – a process that started in the 1990s and took off in the 2000s – has led to a completely new geography of growth driven by the economic rise of large developing countries, in particular China and India. Recent events in well-performing countries in the Arab world and beyond seem to suggest that economic growth, rising fiscal resources and improvements in education are not sufficient to create cohesion. This report analyses the impact of “Shifting wealth” on social cohesion, largely focusing on high-growth converging countries. The question this report asks is how does the structural transformation in converging economies affect their “social fabric”, their sense of belonging or put generally their ability to peacefully manage collective problems.

Since 2002, the annual African Economic Outlook has been charting the progress of the continent’s economies. This year’s Outlook reviews recent economic, social and political developments and the short-term likely evolution of almost all the African countries. The African Economic Outlook is drawn from a country-by-country analysis based on a unique common framework. This includes a forecasting exercise using a simple macroeconomic model, together with an analysis of the social and political context. Its overview chapter provides a comparative synthesis of African country prospects which places the evolution of African economies in the world economic context. A statistical appendix completes the volume. This year’s edition focuses on Africa’s emerging economic partnerships with countries such as China and India.

This year’s Latin American Economic Outlook focuses on those in the middle of the income distribution in Latin America. If these middle sectors have stable employment and reasonably robust incomes, then, arguably, they provide a solid foundation for economic progress. Moreover, following the political role often attributed to the middle classes by historians and sociologists, they might also support moderate but progressive political platforms in Latin America’s democracies. In fact, this report shows that, contrary to expectations, in Latin America this group is still economically vulnerable, few have university degrees and many work in informal employment. This is a “middle class” quite different from the group that became the engine of development in many OECD countries. The report tackles policies such as social protection and education that promote upward mobility. It underscores the importance of fiscal policy as a tool to finance the required reforms and programmes that can engage the Latin American middle sectors in a renewed social contract.

The global financial crisis has offered an important opportunity for Southeast Asian countries to rethink past growth strategies and project new development visions. This inaugural edition of the Southeast Asian Economic Outlook looks at current efforts to rebalance growth for the region and at what form growth will take in the future. The analyses and discussions presented in this volume highlight the need to implement five-year development plans with a view to rebalancing growth and instituting a credible fiscal policy framework conducive to greater fiscal discipline. In particular, well-designed fiscal rules, independent fiscal agencies and a medium-term budgetary framework are crucial elements. Although such institutions are becoming increasingly important across OECD countries, there is room for improving the institutional settings in Southeast Asia.

Illustrated with graphics and maps, the Atlas of Gender and Development gives readers a unique insight into the impact of social institutions − traditions, social norms and cultural practices − on gender equality in 124 non-OECD countries. Gender inequality holds back not just women but the economic and social development of entire societies. Overcoming discrimination is important in the fight against poverty in developing countries and for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals. Tackling these inequalities is not easy: in many countries, discrimination against women is deeply rooted in social institutions such as the family and the law. These long-lasting codes of conduct, norms, traditions, and informal and formal laws determine gender outcomes in education, health, political representation and labour markets.

For PISA 2009, the framework for reading literacy has been developed to encompass reading electronic texts. This has led to an expansion of the description of text types to take account of the electronic environment, as well as a redefinition of the aspects of reading, to embrace, for example, the requirement for integration of information from multiple unrelated texts, as well as other features. The PISA 2009 reading framework and the assessment instrument together provide an operational definition and description of the distinctive structures and types of both text and task that constitute electronic reading, allowing an exploration of factors that contribute to difficulty. PISA 2009 provides an opportunity to investigate electronic reading on a large scale.

Promoting a smooth transition from school to work, and ensuring that youth are given the opportunities to move on in their careers and lives, have long been issues of fundamental importance for our economies and societies. Today, they are even more pressing challenges as the global economy emerges from the worst crisis of the past 50 years. Indeed, young people have borne much of the brunt of the recent jobs crisis. This report makes an important contribution to a new agenda of youth-friendly employment policies and practices. It analyses the situation of youth employment and unemployment in the context of the jobs crisis and identifies successful policy measures in OECD countries. But it also discusses structural reforms in education and in the labour market that can facilitate the transition from school to work. The report draws on both recent data and the main lessons that emerged from the 16 country reviews conducted as part of the OECD Jobs for Youth programme.

The world appears to be emerging from the worst economic crisis in decades. Many countries have made pledges under the Copenhagen Accord to reduce greenhousegas emissions. Are we, at last, on the path to a secure, reliable and environmentally sustainable energy system? Updated projections of energy demand, production, trade and investment, fuel by fuel and region by region to 2035 are provided in the 2010 edition of the World Energy Outlook (WEO). It includes, for the first time, a new scenario that anticipates future actions by governments to meet the commitments they have made to tackle climate change and growing energy insecurity. With extensive data, projections and analysis, WEO-2010 provides invaluable insights into how the energy system could evolve over the next quarter of a century. The book is essential reading for anyone with a stake in the energy sector.

Electricity use is growing worldwide, providing a range of energy services: lighting, heating and cooling, specific industrial uses, entertainment, information technologies, and mobility. Because its generation remains largely based on fossil fuels, electricity is also the largest and the fastest-growing source of energy-related CO2 emissions, the primary cause of human-induced climate change. Forecasts from the IEA and others show that “decarbonising” electricity and enhancing end-use efficiency can make major contributions to the fight against climate change. The IEA Climate and Electricity Annual 2011 provides an authoritative resource on progress to date in this area, with statistics related to CO2 and the electricity sector across ten regions of the world. It also presents topical analyses on meeting the challenge of rapidly curbing CO2 emissions from electricity, from both a policy and technology perspective.

Household consumption patterns and behaviour have an impact on stocks of natural resources, environmental quality and climate change. This is expected to increase significantly in the future. In response, governments have introduced a variety of measures to encourage people to take into consideration the environmental impact of their purchases and practices. These may include environmentally related taxes, energy performance standards for homes, carbon dioxide emission labels for cars, and financial support to purchase solar panels, among others. This publication presents the main results and policy implications of an OECD survey of more than 10 000 households in 10 countries: Australia, Canada, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Korea, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. It offers new insight into what policy measures really work, looking at what factors affect people’s behaviour towards the environment in five areas: water use, energy use, personal transport choices, organic food consumption, and waste generation and recycling.

Eco-innovation is more important than ever on the public policy agenda. It is a major driver for green growth and contributes to the environmental performance and economic development of OECD and developing countries alike. This report takes a pragmatic approach to policies that support the development and diffusion of eco-innovation. Building on the OECD Innovation Strategy, it argues that eco-innovation is not merely about technological developments: non-technical innovations matter as well. It acknowledges that policies do not operate in a vacuum and that they must take account of the contexts that influence the development and diffusion of eco-innovation, such as market structures. It explores links between ecoinnovation policies and related fields such as industry, competition, and international co-operation.

The provision of water supply, sanitation and wastewater services generates substantial benefits for public health, the economy and the environment. Benefitto-cost ratios can be as high as 7 to 1 for basic water and sanitation services in developing countries. Wastewater treatment interventions, for example, generate significant benefits for public health, the environment and for certain economic sectors such as fisheries, tourism and property markets. The full magnitude of the benefits of water services is seldom considered for a number of reasons, including the difficulty in quantifying important non-economic benefits such as non-use values, dignity, social status, cleanliness and overall well-being. Also, information about the benefits of water services is usually hidden in the technical literature, where it remains invisible to key decision-makers in ministries. This report draws together and summarises existing information on the benefits of water and sanitation.

Companies are increasingly aware of the need to address climate change. However, while many companies are taking action to address climate change, many others are still lagging behind. This report surveys responsible business practices addressing climate change and driving the shift to a low-carbon economy. It summarises policies, regulations and other instruments in support of a low carbon economy in OECD countries and emerging economies, and analyses corporate responses to these drivers. Using the principles of responsible business conduct identified in the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, this report reviews three key areas of corporate action: accounting for greenhouse gas emissions; achieving emissions reductions; and engaging suppliers, consumers and other stakeholders.

The movement of personnel between employment in the public and private sectors, referred to as the “revolving door” phenomenon, raises particular attention in the context of the response of governments to the financial and economic crisis. This OECD survey of 30 member countries shows that the vast majority of countries have established basic standards for preventing post-public employment conflict of interest. But few have tailored these standards to address risk areas and professions such as regulators or public procurement officials. Enforcing standards and imposing suitable sanctions remains a challenge for many countries.

What contribution can nuclear energy make to improve the security of energy supply? This study, which examines a selection of OECD member countries, qualitatively and quantitatively validates the often intuitive assumption that, as a largely domestic source of electricity with stable costs and no greenhouse gas emissions during production, nuclear energy can make a positive contribution. Following an analysis of the meaning and context of security of supply, the study uses transparent and policyrelevant indicators to show that, together with improvements in energy efficiency, nuclear energy has indeed contributed significantly to enhanced energy supply security in OECD countries over the past 40 years.

Large volumes of hazardous wastes are produced each year, however only a small proportion of them are radioactive. While disposal options for hazardous wastes are generally well established, some types of hazardous waste face issues similar to those for radioactive waste and also require long-term disposal arrangements. The objective of this NEA study is to put the management of radioactive waste into perspective, firstly by contrasting features of radioactive and hazardous wastes, together with their management policies and strategies, and secondly by examining the specific case of the wastes resulting from carbon capture and storage of fossil fuels. The study seeks to give policy makers and interested stakeholders a broad overview of the similarities and differences between radioactive and hazardous wastes and their management strategies.

The tenth edition of the OECD Science, Technology and Industry (STI) Scoreboard builds on 50 years of indicators development, looking at major trends in knowledge and innovation in the global economy, changes in drivers of growth, interdependencies across economies over time, and how the scientific and research landscape is being reconfigured by convergence, interdisciplinarity and the new geography of innovation hotspots and increased collaboration. Its five chapters position countries around their efforts to invest in future growth, the extent to which they benefit from global and local knowledge transfers, build scientific and technological strengths, foster innovation and entrepreneurship and build on science, technology and innovation to compete in the global economy. The OECD STI Scoreboard 2011 illustrates and analyses a wide set of indicators of science, technology, globalisation and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries (notably Brazil, Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa). It also includes some experimental indicators that provide insight into new areas of policy interest and presents broader measures of innovation, for example using new indicators of investment in intangible assets and trademarks.

The OECD Communications Outlook 2011 presents the most recent comparable data on the performance of the communications sector in OECD countries and on their policy frameworks. The 2011 edition analyses the effects of the global financial crisis on revenues, subscriptions and international trade, as well as on emerging trends such as the rapid development of the applications market for a growing range of access devices. It provides an extensive range of indicators for the development of different communications networks and compares performance indicators such as revenue, investment and prices for service throughout the OECD area. These indicators are essential for industry and for regulators who use benchmarking to evaluate policy performance. This book is based on the data from the OECD Telecommunications Database 2011, which provides time series of telecommunications and economic indicators, such as broadband networks, revenues, and investment for OECD countries from 1980 to 2009. This volume also includes a special OECD 50th Anniversary chapter.

Well-timed and targeted innovation boosts productivity, increases economic growth and helps solve societal problems. But how can governments encourage more people to innovate more of the time? And how can government itself be more innovative? The OECD Innovation Strategy provides a set of principles for fostering innovation in people (workers and consumers), in firms and in government. It takes an in-depth look at the scope of innovation and how it is changing, as well as where and how it is occurring. The result is the formulation of far-reaching policies for innovation using recent research and data.

Measuring Innovation: A New Perspective presents new measures and new ways of looking at traditional indicators. This publication begins by describing innovation today. It looks at what is driving innovation in firms, and how the scientific and research landscape is being reconfigured by convergence, interdisciplinarity and the new geography of innovation hot spots. It presents broader measures of innovation, for example using new indicators of investment in intangible assets and trademarks. Human capital is the basic input of innovation, and a series of indicators looks at how well education systems are contributing to the knowledge and research bases. Further series examine how firms transform skills and knowledge, and shed light on the different roles of public and private investment in fostering innovation and reaping its rewards.

All OECD governments want to give parents more choice in their work and family decisions. This book looks at the different ways in which governments support families. It seeks to provide answers to questions like: Is spending on family benefits going up, and how does it vary by the age of the child? Has the crisis affected public support for families? What is the best way of helping adults to have the number of children they desire? What are the effects of parental leave programmes on female labour supply and on child well-being? Are childcare costs a barrier to parental employment and can flexible workplace options help? What is the best time for mothers to go back to work after childbirth? And what are the best policies to reduce poverty among sole parents?’

The theme of this fourth edition of Pensions at a Glance is pensions, retirement and life expectancy. Many countries have increased pension ages in the face of population ageing and longer lives. An in-depth look at these important policy issues is provided by five special chapters on: pension ages, retirement behaviour, pension incentives to retire, the demand for older workers and linking pensions to life expectancy. This edition updates information on the key features of pension provision in OECD countries and provides projections of retirement income for today’s workers. It offers an expanded range of 34 indicators, covering the design of national retirement-income provision, pension entitlements, incomes of older people, the finances of pension systems, the demographic and economic context in which pension systems operate and private pensions. More countries are analysed than in previous editions, including four new members of the OECD: Chile, Estonia, Israel and Slovenia. Where possible, data are also provided for the other major economies in the G20: Argentina, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, Saudi Arabia and South Africa. Along with data on the European Union’s 27 member states, this brings to 43 the number of economies covered in the report.

The OECD Transfer Pricing Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and Tax Administrations provide guidance on the application of the “arm’s length principle”, which is the international consensus on transfer pricing, i.e. on the valuation, for tax purposes, of cross-border transactions between associated enterprises. In a global economy where multinational enterprises (MNEs) play a prominent role, governments need to ensure that the taxable profits of MNEs are not artificially shifted out of their jurisdictions and that the tax base reported by MNEs in their respective countries reflect the economic activity undertaken therein. For taxpayers, it is essential to limit the risks of economic double taxation that may result from a dispute between two countries on the determination of an arm’s length remuneration for their cross-border transactions with associated enterprises. In the 2010 edition, Chapters I-III were substantially revised, with new guidance on: the selection of the most appropriate transfer pricing method to the circumstances of the case; the practical application of transactional profit methods (transactional net margin method and profit split method); and on the performance of comparability analyses. Furthermore, a new Chapter IX, on the transfer pricing aspects of business restructurings, was added.

The Report on the Attribution of Profits to Permanent Establishments, approved in its original form by the OECD Council on 17 July 2008, provides guidance on the manner in which the arm’s length principle can be used in determining the profits attributable to a permanent establishment under Article 7 of the OECD Model Tax Convention. In order to fully implement the conclusions of the 2008 Report, the Commitee on Fiscal Affairs decided to draft a new version of Article 7, which now appears in the 2010 update to the Model Tax Convention. The Committee also decided to publish simultaneously with that update a modified 2010 version of the Report, which does not change the conclusions of the 2008 Report but simply deletes obsolete crossreferences and aligns the Report’s wording with the text of the new Article 7 and the revised Transfer Pricing Guidelines.

In this collection of essays, past and present negotiators of the OECD export credit agreements, presidents and chief executives of export credit agencies, international institutions, private-sector players, economists, OECD staffers and others chart the evolution of export credits during the life time of the OECD as it now reaches its 50th anniversary. These players examine the sources of the flexibility that has made the OECD export credit regime so successful in adapting to the changing, globalising world economy. Some of the contributions offer remarkably candid insights into the often closed world of international negotiations; others document the response of the international rules for export credits - which are negotiated in the OECD - to the growing sophistication of financial and insurance services. All of them shed light on this increasingly important aspect of international trade.

Numerous barriers prevent developing countries – in particular the least developed – from taking advantage of trade opportunities that could help them reduce poverty. The Aid-for-Trade Initiative has successfully built awareness of the support these countries need to surmount these barriers. As a result, more and more developing countries are raising the profile of trade issues in their development strategies and donors are responding by increasing the resources they provide to build trade capacity in areas such as policy, institutions and infrastructure. This aid-for-trade monitoring report – the third of its kind – documents the success of the initiative to date. It examines trends and developments and presents a comprehensive analysis of donor and partner country engagement. In addition, it addresses the regional dimension of aid for trade and showcases three cross-border infrastructure projects. Finally, the report provides fact sheets that help in assessing the outcomes and impacts of aid for trade.

Aiming to advance understanding of why car markets currently fail to deliver sufficient fuel economy, this Round Table opens by questioning whether any additional measures would be necessary once an appropriate price for carbon dioxide is established via fuel taxes. It confirms that there are indeed market imperfections that merit additional government intervention. Fuel economy and CO2 regulations are an essential part of the package. The key to maximising the benefits of such regulations is long-term planning. Subsidies to electric vehicles are more problematic because of the risks of prematurely picking winning technologies and creating subsidy dependence. And electricity production has yet to be decarbonised. However, intervention to steer innovation in this direction is merited so long as the risks of not attaining climate policy targets are seen as higher than the risks of intervention.

Cost-benefit analysis (CBA) is indispensable for making good decisions on what transport projects to fund. It essentially aims to figure out which projects offer the best value for money. However, the practical relevance of CBA does not always live up to its appeal in principle. One problem is that there is sometimes disagreement over what to include in CBA, both on the cost side and the benefits side of the analysis. As a result, value for money is not always fully transparent. More politically, value for money is only a partial criterion for decision-making, leading to disagreement about the relative importance of the results from CBA compared to other inputs to the decisionmaking process. This report examines the extent to which these shortcomings can be addressed. In terms of what to include in CBA, discussion focuses on equity and distributional impacts, productivity effects, agglomeration benefits and external costs. The focus then turns to how best to present guidance on project selection to decision makers.
