Rising fossil fuel support poses a threat to building a healthier and climate-safe future OECD analysis of budgetary transfers, tax breaks and spending programmes linked to the production and use of coal, oil, gas and other petroleum products in 44 OECD and G20 economies showed that total fossil fuel support rose by 10% to USD 178 billion in 2019, ending a five-year downward trend.

Data - Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development

The analysis builds on the OECD Inventory of support measures for fossil fuels. In 2019, oil and gas industries in several countries received additional benefit, mostly through direct budgetary support to alleviate corporate debt, fossil-fuel infrastructure investments, and tax provisions that provide preferential treatment on capital expenditures for fossil-fuel production.

As in all other EBP maps data is grouped in 52 weeks. Despite most EBP data (86%) is updated daily some online portals still submit their data at longer intervals and, therefore, the areas covered by these portals can appear blank in the most recent weeks (see below which the most recent data available is from each online portal and the usual update frequency of each country or region). Note that the most recent week depicted in these maps, usually the current one, may not have finished yet and, thus, special attention must be paid when interpreting distributional patterns of such incomplete weeks. Note also that, despite the different data validation protocols put in place, LIVE maps show so recent data that some erroneous records or counts may not have been detected yet. Once corrected, the system automatically deals with these errors in subsequent data updates. Table of Contents - 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines. Global Forest Watch.
