Since the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, sustainability has emerged as an overarching policy goal in the OECD Secretariat and in its Member countries. Real progress depends upon the integration of environmental and social goals with economic ones. This publication provides an overview and analysis of trends, and identifies policy gaps and trade-offs that have been encountered and points to future options. The authors document positive trends which have emerged signaling greater sustainability, as well as areas where progress has proved more elusive. While the main focus is the OECD region, expanding linkages--among all countries and regions--form an important part of the story. The coverage of the volume reflects the OECD's diverse subject matter expertise, and some of the interdisciplinary synergies that the Organization can generate. This publication gives essential keys to meet the major challenge of the 21st century: helping to make sustainability a reality.
