Job Position | OECD Young Professionals Programme

In the framework of the recently released call for the OECD Young Professionals Programme, the Environment Directorate (ENV) of OECD is seeking to hire an outstanding professional to join the Empirical Policy Analysis Unit.


The job description can be found right below.


Land use and achieving economic and environmental objectives [ref: ENV 12]

Land-use patterns affect the quality of the environment. Regulations, taxation and planning affect land-use. How should these instruments be deployed to ensure land-use aligns with preservation of the environment, while also contributing to economic growth and development? The absence of a coherent approach to land-use and spatial planning weighs not only on the preservation of the environment, but also holds back investment decisions and impedes economic opportunities. At the same time, traditional planning controls may not always be the most economically efficient way of tackling environmental challenges for which they are prescribed, or they may be undermined by competing policy approaches. This project will examine empirically the impact of land-use and spatial planning instruments on environmental and economic outcomes. The ultimate goal of the project is to provide recommendations to policy makers on how to design policies and regulations that affect land use in order to support green growth and the transition to a low carbon economy.


As a core member of the empirical analysis team in the Environment and Economy Integration Division, you will contribute actively to all aspects of the above project. You will be involved in undertaking literature reviews of spatial and land use planning frameworks in OECD member and non-member countries, contribute to developing a typology of land use and spatial planning instruments, and in undertaking empirical analysis to 8

examine the environmental and economic consequences of such instruments. You will also examine the linkages between spatial and land use planning and policies to improve urban air quality.


We would like to invite dynamic candidates with a sound background in Econometrics and Environmental and/or Urban Economics from your Department to submit their application for this position [ref: ENV 12]  by following this link.


Please note that the closing date for this vacancy is Wednesday 25 November 2014, midnight, Paris time.
