LEED Programme (Local Economic and Employment Development)

LEED Trento Centre: integrated local development

 

Taking an integrated approach to local development

Integrated, locally-tailored approaches can be more effective in stimulating growth and tackling exclusion issues than one-size-fits-all, top-down and uncoordinated programmes.

Effective local policy design and implementation can stimulate investments, build resilient labour markets, and improve entrepreneurial and business ecosystems.

It requires a deep understanding of how policies interact and how different levers can be combined for maximum impact. 


 

2017-2018 Focus

A. Designing more effective strategies for local economic development

The activity will enhance capacities in the design, implementation and evaluation of local economic development strategies, including with respect to the delivery of EU ESI Funds programmes at the local level and in the context of remote communities. The work will contribute to the activity on Delivering Effective Local Economic Development in the LEED programme of work as well as that of the OECD Regional Development Policy Committee (RDPC).

B. Knowledge-sharing on local development strategies and practices among Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) and OECD countries

The Trento Centre manages the International Summer School on Community and Local Development to build capacity of policy officials and practitioners in the design and implementation of local economic development strategies in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). 

It organises capacity building sessions and manages learning tools which encourage the adoption of successful techniques in stimulating the various drivers of local development, such as entrepreneurship, social enterprises, micro-credit, innovation, skills development, social cohesion and inclusion and local governance.

A community of practice provides a platform for government officers and practitioners to share experiences on socio-economic development throughout LAC.
