LEED Programme (Local Economic and Employment Development)

Forum on Partnerships and Local Development

 

OECD LEED Forum on Partnerships and Local Development‌The OECD Local Economic and Employment Development Programme drew the attention of governments long ago to the role of local partnership organisations as agents of change and instruments to improve governance and policy implementation. 14 countries joined the LEED comparative study on Local Partnerships in 1999-2003. Today networks of partnership organisation are in place in a great number of countries, involved in the implementation of employment, economic and social policies among others. In 2004, the Austrian Federal Ministry of Economy and Labour, the European Commission (DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion) and the OECD joined forces to create the OECD LEED Forum on Partnerships and Local Governance as way to reinforce these governance structures and their impact on policy. In 2013, to reflect its growing relevance as a worldwide network of local development practitioners, the Forum was renamed the OECD LEED Forum on Partnerships and Local Development.

Today the Forum has a membership of over 2,600 members in 53 countries.
