OECD 2019 Public Procurement Week: Unpacking Complexity

As a member of the OECD Working Party of Leading Procurement Practitioners, we presented and debated on SAVi analyses at the 2019 OECD Public Procurement Week in Paris, France, which was held from October 22-25, 2019.  The presentation featured a discussion on the costs of climate risks, based on examples such as the SAVi analyses on green economy policies in Georgia, an offshore wind asset in the Netherlands and a public bicycle sharing scheme in New Delhi.  Participants said that unless the costs of climate risks are built into procurement decisions, procurers will not be delivering value for money across the asset life cycle.
