  • Water policies intersect with a wide array of sectors, especially energy and agriculture, and are implemented at various geographical scales, from local to international. Thus, policy coherence is essential. However, tensions may arise from real or perceived trade‑offs between various policy objectives ‑ for instance, between food security and water productivity. Inefficiencies may result from subsidies that have negative impacts on water, as in the case of energy subsidies for groundwater abstraction by farmers.

  • The connection between poverty and lack of education seems entirely self-evident, yet real progress in overcoming the obstacles to education and economic affluence has eluded governments and social activists worldwide for decades.

  • By going back to the classifications used in the specialised literature on the subject, this study covers –in a manner restricted to certain economic policies and, therefore, excluding other non-economic policies, such as security, defence and cultural policies– what the OECD (2000) has called horizontal coherence and Picciotto (2005a and b) intra- country coherence or whole of government.

  • Andrew von Hirsch addresses a number of emerging conceptual questions concerning the proportionality of criminal sentences, an approach that is gaining influence worldwide including in England where the Criminal Justice Act of 1991 made proportionality the primary criterion for determining sentences. This study deals with how the idea of penal censure justifies proportionate sentences, how a penalty scale should be "anchored" in order to reduce overall punishment levels, how non-custodial penalties should be graded and used, and how political pressures impinge on sentencing policies.

  • In other words, we exclude both the analysis of other (non-economic) foreign policies with an impact on the development of development-aid-receiving countries, and the coherence between the instruments and objectives of international development cooperation policy. Some of these aspects are covered in previous papers on the coherence of Spain’s development policies, such as Alonso and FitzGerald (2003). Very broadly speaking, the development of aid-receiving countries has been established as the objective we have to be consistent with.

  • Yet the measures agreed so far are not suffi cient to contain the negative environmental effects of transport growth. Furthermore, there is still no coherent ‘roadmap’ to reduce emissions from transport. The rail sector strongly recommends that transport policies in the EU and elsewhere start to make more use of the energy effi ciency of railways in order to progress towards the 2020 targets. Railways already offer the most energy-effi cient performance and are constantly improving, both in terms of passenger km (pkm) and tonne km (tkm)....

  • In many countries, no comprehensive and coherent policy and legislation exists for water pollution control or for environmental protection (see Case Study XIII, Yemen). This does not prevent water pollution control from taking place before such policies have been formulated and adopted, but the most efficient and effective outcome of water pollution control is obtained within a framework of defined policies, plans and co-ordinating activities.

  • This study also aims to offer a more complete view of the many necessary measures to achieve global and coherent actions from donor countries.

  • The governments of Finland and Korea both have demonstrated during past downturns that bold innovation policy initiatives can accelerate structural changes which face high obstacles in normal times (Box 1). Such initiatives require proper framework conditions and a coherent crisis strategy. Anti-crisis policy measures can provide built-in incentives to innovate Clearly, innovation will be one of the keys to emerging from the downturn and putting countries back on a path to sustainable – and smarter – growth.
