  2. 2. Since 1992, the OECD has conducted more than 100 Environmental Performance Reviews (EPRs). Nearly all OECD countries have been reviewed three times. Norway conducted three EPRs in 1993, 2001 and 2011. ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE REVIEWS PEER LEARNING Encourage performance improvement and policy reforms through benchmarking and cross-country comparison POLICY DIALOGUE Encourage peer learning through the exchange of best practices GREATER ACCOUNTABILITY Spark national debate on environmental goals and how to best achieve them The EPRs encourage gradual convergence towards the best performing countries.
  3. 3. Peer reviews, where each country’s policy is examined by fellow members on an equal basis, have been used at the OECD for more than 50 years. Norway’s economic, fiscal, social and environmental performance has also been analysed in many sectoral studies and territorial reviews. PEER REVIEWS PEER REVIEWS TERRITORIAL REVIEWS SECTORAL ANALYSES The OECD promotes a whole-of-government approach drawing on a broad range of expertise.

OECD Economic Surveys NORWAY Wellbeing in Norway is high; GDP per capita is among the top-ranking countries and the country scores well in measures of inclusiveness. Several challenges must be addressed, however, if this good standing is to be sustained. The economy is vulnerable to trade risks. Also, though property markets and related credit appear to be heading for a soft landing, risks remain. Norway has substantial opportunities for more effective public spending remain, and exploiting these will become more important as fiscal space narrows. Productivity growth remains low, requiring attention to business policy. Employment rates among young and middle age cohorts have declined, and despite some positive trends many among older cohorts retire early. This is eroding Norway’s otherwise good record of strong labour supply and socio-economic inclusiveness through jobs. Chapter 2 of this Survey looks at this, and other aspects of Norway’s labour market. Policy issues covered include sick leave compensation and disability benefit, the old-age pension’s role in early retirement, education and skills, and immigrant integration.
