        Message 31 - Information from Kevin Parris
        Fri, 16 Mar 2001 15:35:43 +0100

It might be of interest to the Rio+10 Conference to know of a recent OECD
report relevant to the subject of measuring agriculture's impact on the
environment.  Please find below a possible message which could be circulated
to the Conference.

Kind regards,
Kevin Parris, Senior Economist, Policies and Environment Division,
Agriculture Directorate, OECD,


OECD has just published a new report titled: Environmental Indicators for
Agriculture Volume 3: Methods and Results.  This is the first international
study to provide a comprehensive picture of the state and trends of
environmental conditions in agriculture across OECD Member countries from
the mid-1980s to the present day. Its conclusions are largely based on a set
of indicators that use a common methodology to allow cross-country
comparison of agri-environmental performance.  

The Main Report, containing over 400 pages with nearly 60 tables and 100
figures (also available in French), is also available in summary form as the
Executive Summary which can be downloaded free of charge from the OECD
agri-environmental indicator website at:

If you require further information on the OECD agri-environmental indicator
work please visit the new website or contact me at the address below.
