Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
This report provides a comprehensive view of practices and developments in the governance, implementation and performance of budgeting across OECD countries. It looks at recent practices such as the application of medium-term frameworks and the use of data and analytics to highlight the impacts of policies on concerns such as gender equality and the environment.
March 2019
Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
The report outlines policy tools that national governments can use to encourage an efficient, effective and equitable response to ongoing coastal change. It is informed by new analysis on the future costs of sea-level rise, and the main findings from four case studies (Canada, Germany, New Zealand and the United Kingdom).

Market Uptake of Solar Thermal Electricity (MUSTEC)
This report investigates clean energy policy strategies in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, and the European Union (EU) as a whole and finds that none of these pathways would lead to decarbonisation to the extent required to fulfil the European (Union and national) commitments under the Paris Agreement. The report points to a greater need for power system flexibility in order to expand intermittent renewables.

Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, Renewable Energy Policy Network for the 21st Century (REN21), Agora Verkehrswende
This study provides a clear picture of the state of G20 transport emissions, analyses already existing approaches for decarbonising the transport sector and stresses the urgency of putting ambitious climate action on the political agenda. It includes factsheets on each G20 member that shed light on the specific situation and challenges in each country, including existing goals and efforts. The report concludes by comparing stated ambition with implemented policies and actions while also considering required global reductions in the transport sector to keep the global temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius.

Resource efficiency is a key approach to decoupling economic growth from environmental degradation while enhancing human well-being. It stimulates innovation, the creation of new industries, and boosts economic competitiveness.

December 2017
International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA)

Solar photovoltaic (PV) power generation has grown rapidly, from less than 1 gigawatt (GW) in 2000 to about 300 GW worldwide in 2017. Solar PV’s competitiveness against other sources of electricity has also continued evolving.

Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI)
This working paper Climate Finance in the Pacific: An Overview of Flows to the Region’s Small Island Developing States presents an analysis of climate finance flows to Pacific Island states in 2010–2014, collectively and by country, as well as more recent data on flows from multilateral climate funds.

Energy efficiency policies play a key role in the transformation to a ‘green energy economy’.

October 2016
Applied Energy (Elsevier)

The Green Economy (GE) paradigm aims to reconcile environmental and socio-economic objectives. Policies to deploy renewable energy (RE) are widely perceived as a way to tap the potential synergies of these objectives.

The green economy policy discourse has devoted a lot of attention to the design of public policy addressing low-carbon technologies. In this paper the researchers examine the impacts of public R&D support and feed-in tariff schemes on innovation in the wind energy sector.
