Long-term Care for Older People (Paperback): OECD. Published by : OECD Publishing Long-term Care for Older People (Paperback)
OECD. Published by : OECD Publishing
R769 Discovery Miles 7 690 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

When the baby-boom generation reaches the oldest age groups over the next three decades, demand for long-term care will rise steeply. How do governments in OECD countries respond to this growing demand? What has been done to increase access to long-term care and to improve the quality and affordability of services? Are there examples of successful strategies to improve the mix of services and policies to enable a larger number of older persons to stay in their homes? And has this helped contain the costs of caring for the elderly? This study reports on the latest trends in long-term care policies in nineteen OECD countries: Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. It studies lessons learned from countries that undertook major reforms over the past decade. Trends in expenditure, financing, and the number of care recipients are analyzed based on new data on cross-country differences. Special attention is given to experience with programs that provide consumers of services with a choice of care options, including cash to family caregivers. Concise country profiles of long-term care systems and an overview on demography and living situations of older persons make this complex policy field more accessible.

La protection de l'environnement fait dsormais partie intgrante des politiques publiques aux niveaux local, national et mondial. Dans tous les cas, il convient de peser soigneusement les cots et les avantages des politiques et projets en utilisant un talon de mesure montaire commun. Pourtant les catgories de cots et bnfices valuer sont trs diverses, notamment l'impact sur la sant, la dgradation du patrimoine et l'appauvrissement de l'cosystme et, par ailleurs, les effets sur le bien-tre. En outre, un grand nombre de ces avantages ou dommages ne se font sentir qu' long terme, parfois sur plusieurs gnrations, ou bien sont irrversibles (rchauffement de la plante, diminution de la biodiversit...). Comment valuer ces lments et les chiffrer en units montaires ? Comment devrions-nous prendre en compte les effets sur les gnrations venir et l'impact des pertes irrversibles ? Comment traiter les questions d'quit et de durabilit ? Cet ouvrage prsente une valuation approfondie des dveloppements conceptuels et mthodologiques les plus rcents dans ce domaine. Il devrait constituer une rfrence et un outil prcieux pour les conomistes de l'environnement et les analystes des politiques.

The services sector now accounts for over 70% of employment and value added in OECD economies. It also accounts for almost all employment growth in the OECD area. But despite its growing weight in OECD economies, productivity growth and employment rates in services remain low in many OECD countries. This report provides an overview of the role of services in economic performance, and the factors that affect services sector performance. This includes the role of labour and product markets, the impact of barriers to trade in services, the role of innovation in services and the impacts of information and communications technology (ICT) on the services sector. The report also includes a paper presenting case studies of successful services firms, which help illustrate the broader analysis from OECD data. Table of contents in English - EXECUTIVE SUMMARY - INTRODUCTION AND SYNTHESIS - THE SERVICE ECONOMY IN OECD COUNTRIES - THE IMPACT OF STRUCTURAL POLICIES ON TRADE-RELATED ADJUSTMENTS AND THE SHIFT TO SERVICES - THE ECONOMY-WIDE EFFECTS OF SERVICES TRADE BARRIERS - THE IMPACT OF SERVICES BARRIERS ON EFFECTIVE RATES OF PROTECTION IN AGRICULTURE AND MANUFACTURING - PROMOTING INNOVATION IN SERVICES - POTENTIAL OFF-SHORING OF ICT-INTENSIVE OCCUPATIONS - ICT USE IN SERVICES AND THE GROWTH OF DIGITAL CONTENT SERVICES - CASE STUDIES OF SUCCESSFUL COMPANIES AND LESSONS FOR PUBLIC POLICY

Across OECD countries, governments are seeking policies to make education more effective while searching for additional resources to meet the increasing demand for education. The 2005 edition of Education at a Glance: OECD Indicators enables countries to see themselves in the light of other countries' performance. It provides a rich, comparable and up-to-date array of indicators on the performance of education systems. In doing so, it represents the consensus of professional thinking on how to measure the current state of education internationally. The indicators look at who participates in education, what is spent on it and how education systems operate, and at the results achieved. The latter includes indicators on a wide range of outcomes ranging from comparisons of student performance in key subject areas to the impact of education on earnings and adults' chances of employment. New material in this edition includes: Selected Results of the 2003 survey of OECD's Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), Data on the distribution of earnings for individuals with different educational levels as well as first evidence of non-economic outcomes of education, Comparisons of the participation of labour force members in continuing education and training, An analysis of student learning time out of school, A comparison between the performance of public and private schools, and Data on the policies and practices secondary school systems employ to differentiate among students and the impact of these on outcomes. The ExcelTM spreadsheets used to create the tables and charts in this book are available via the StatLinks printed in this book. The tables, charts and the complete Education Database are freely available via the OECD Education website at www.oecd.org/edu/eag2005. FURTHER READING: Education Policy Analysis

On s'accorde de plus en plus reconnatre que les systmes de certification ont un rle crucial jouer pour amliorer la qualit de la formation tout au long de la vie et en augmenter la frquence. Certains pays commencent ainsi prendre conscience du fait que l'adoption de mesures isoles dans le domaine des standards de certification aboutit des systmes fragments et mal coordonns. Ils souhaitent donc dsormais mettre en place des approches globales l'chelle du systme pour traiter la question de la certification des acquis. Cet ouvrage examine ces stratgies nationales et leurs retombes positives. Aprs avoir pass en revue les politiques et pratiques en vigueur dans quinze pays, les auteurs prsentent neuf stratgies destines promouvoir la formation tout au long de la vie. Toutes ces stratgies nationales sont lies d'une manire ou d'une autre aux systmes de certification. Les auteurs identifient ensuite vingt mcanismes, ou liens concrets, entre les objectifs des systmes nationaux de certification et ceux de la formation tout au long de la vie. Au travers de ces mcanismes, cet ouvrage cherche fournir aux gouvernements et aux dcideurs des outils qui puissent les aider reconsidrer leurs politiques et programmes en matire de formation tout au long de la vie. Les rsultats suggrent que certains mcanismes jouent un rle particulirement important dans la promotion de la formation tout au long de la vie. On citera notamment ceux lis au transfert de crdits, la reconnaissance des acquis antrieurs, aux cadres de certification et l'implication des acteurs concerns. Enfin, cet ouvrage apporte un clairage nouveau sur l'influence que les systmes nationaux de certification peuvent exercer sur la formation tout au long de la vie.

Much is at stake in the global effort to tackle corruption in public procurement Corruption diverts public funds from worthwhile development projects, holds back economic growth and undermines public trust in government. Public procurement - the purchase of goods and services by governments and state-owned enterprises - accounts for about 15 per cent of GDP in OECD countries and is highly exposed to corruption. Both public and private actors in the procurement process may be tempted to divert goods and services or public funds for their personal use. To identify "weak links" in the public procurement process where the risk of corruption is high, to explore the best ways of improving transparency and accountability and to identify effective actions to prevent, detect and sanction corruption in this field, the OECD organised a Global Forum on Governance event on "Fighting Corruption and Promoting Integrity in Public Procurement," hosted by the French Ministry of Economy, Finance and Industry in Paris in November 2004. This publication captures the main points of the Global Forum discussions and presents expert analysis of the main issues and case studies from the varied experiences of countries and specialised bodies, mainly in Europe, Asia and Latin America, that contributed to the event.

China has experienced spectacular economic growth since 1978, averaging 8 to 9% per year. As a result, on average, people's standard of living is far higher than ever before in China's history. However, economic disparities have also widened very significantly during this period, raising questions about the appropriateness and sustainability of existing policies. This book includes the papers from a seminar held in Paris on 20-21 October 2003 to explore the causes of China's growing economic disparities. The seminar was organised by the OECD and the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) of China. The papers by Chinese and OECD experts look at the driving forces behind these trends and discuss possible policy responses. The collection presents many comparisons with income inequality trends in OECD countries, including geographic disparities, and looks at ways to improve Chinese data on income distribution.This book is part of the OECD's ongoing co-operation with non-member economies around the world.

What are the impacts on environmental effectiveness and economic efficiency of using an "instrument mix," rather than a single instrument, to address a given environmental problem? What are the main arguments for using such instrument mixes, and are the instrument mixes currently in use actually well designed in response to these arguments? These are the main questions addressed in this report, which is based on a series of in-depth case studies. The case studies analyse instrument mixes applied in OECD countries to address household waste, non-point sources of water pollution in agriculture, residential energy efficiency, regional air pollution and emissions to air of mercury.
