Title OECD 2005 Environmentally Harmful Subsidies: Challenges for Reform
Description Many OECD countries would like to reduce subsidies and protection that favour 
particular sectors or industries in their economies, particularly those that also harm the 
environment as well as imposing economic costs. In 2001, Ministers from the member 
countries of the OECD asked the Organisation to identify how obstacles to policy reform 
to achieve sustainable development could be overcome, in particular obstacles to 
reducing environmentally harmful subsidies. This report presents a synthesis of the work 
that has been undertaken as part of the horizontal project to address this request.
