Environmental Policy is a subject with a long history, and ever increasing global relevance. Within modern China questions of sustainable urbanization, and the environmental cost of rapid economic development are of vital importance. With this Virtual Issue, we have attempted to demonstrate the breadth of research being carried out that impacts on Environmental Policy, from the physical causes of climate change through to the human effects of land use change.

This report on agricultural policies covers OECD member countries. This edition shows that after an increase in 2009, producer support in OECD area declined in 2010 and remained rather stable in 2011. In the longer term perspective the OECD estimates of support confirm the downward trend in support to farmers. This report is a unique source of up-to-date estimates of support to agriculture in the OECD area and is complemented by individual chapters on agricultural policy developments in OECD countries. Data for the calculations of support are available online: www.oecd.org/agriculture/PSE.
