2. OECD Environment Directorate :
  The OECD Environment Directorate provides governments with the analytical basis to develop policies that are effective and economically efficient, including through country performance reviews, data collection, policy analysis, projections and modelling, and the development of common approaches.
3. Environmental Economics :
  One way of using economics is to ensure that the costs and the benefits of environmental measures are well balanced. Although it is difficult to estimate costs and benefits, there is an increasing demand that this is done before new environmental policy is decided on a European level. The economic unit of Environment DG supports the technical units (dealing e.g. with air pollution, water pollution, waste, climate change etc.) in finding such information.
4. International Labour Organization :
  The International Labour Organization is the UN specialized agency which seeks the promotion of social justice and internationally recognized human and labour rights.

It is jointly managed by FAO and IFAD, in close cooperation with WFP The ACC Network on Rural Development and Food Security aims to mobilize support for government efforts to implement the World Food Summit Plan of Action and rural development and food security programmes; to reinforce ties between UN system organizations and other stakeholders and to foster complementarities and synergies, as well as the exchange and dissemination of information, experiences and best practices.
6. Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development OECD :
  This part of our web site introduces the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and describes how it works. The OECD groups 30 member countries in an organisation that, most importantly, provides governments a setting in which to discuss, develop and perfect economic and social policy. They compare experiences, seek answers to common problems and work to co-ordinate domestic and international policies that increasingly in today's globalised world must form a web of even practice across nations. Their exchanges may lead to agreements to act in a formal way - for example, by establishing legally-binding codes for free flow of capital and services, agreements to crack down on bribery or to end subsidies for shipbuilding.
7. Council of European Municipalities and Regions :
  Established in 1951, the Council of European Municipalities and Regions originated from the conviction that local and regional authorities have a fundamental role to play in the realization of the European Union. They provide popular support for Europe through the efforts of local politicians who are the elected representatives closest to the citizens. Today, CEMR brings together more than 100 000 local and regional authorities in Europe, federated through 42 large national associations of local and regional authorities in 29 countries
