We have worked with the OECD on targeted reviews and special studies in the field of local and territorial development since 1998.
The mission of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is to promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
The OECD provides a forum in which governments can work together to share experiences and seek solutions to common problems. The OECD works with governments to understand what drives economic, social and environmental change. OECD measures productivity and global flows of trade and investment. OECD analyses and compares data to predict future trends. They set international standards on a wide range of things, from agriculture and tax to the safety of chemicals.
Among the OECD reviews we have contributed to include:
We have also contributed to a number of key OECD publications on a variety of city development topics:
Greg Clark, Tim Moonen and Emily Moir along with their partners at OECD LEED view local economic development as a complex process that requires unique kinds of leadership if it is to succeed. Case studies of Amsterdam, Hamburg, Manchester, and Stockholm.
