In 2001, OECD Environment Ministers agreed on an ambitious Environmental Strategy for the first decade of the 21st century. The Strategy set out clear directions for environmentally sustainable policies and includes five key objectives:

  • Maintaining the integrity of ecosystems through the efficient management of natural resources.
  • Decoupling environmental pressures from economic growth.
  • Improving information for decision-making: Measuring progress through indicators.
  • The social and environmental interface: Enhancing the quality of life.
  • Global environmental interdependence: Improving governance and co-operation.

This report assesses the progress that OECD countries have made in implementing these objectives, as well as in applying the 71 national actions they agreed as part of the Environmental Strategy. It highlights the challenges and obstacles that remain if countries are to achieve the objectives by the planned date of 2010.
