In spite of recent successes, many challenges remain, including persistent social and economic inequality and environmental degradation. For many years, the OECD has been working hand in hand with governments around the world to support the development of effective economic, social and environmental policies. Sharing policy experiences and setting new international standards through
peer learning, benchmarking and monitoring is a vital part of the OECD mission.
