Aujourd’hui les pays se heurtent à de nombreux défis de politique de l’environnement, notamment  les changements climatiques, la pollution de l’air et de l’eau, la gestion des ressources naturelles, les catastrophes naturelles et les risques environnementaux. Les coûts de l’inaction peuvent être considérables et, dans certains cas, représenter un grave préjudice pour les économies de l’OCDE. L’estimation de ces coûts peut être très utile pour déterminer les domaines dans lesquels des interventions sont nécessaires et pour établir les priorités pour l’action futu

Recent evidence suggests that the prevalence of HIV/AIDS is increasing in the Middle East, North Africa, and Eastern Mediterranean (MENA/EM) region, and that the total number of AIDS-related deaths has risen almost sixfold since the early 1990s.

Consequently, the effectiveness of policies, programs, and resources intended to address the spread of HIV/AIDS has been compromised.This report aims to fill the knowled
