Who is involved


The Initiative encourages policy dialogue and peer learning on a variety of key areas enabling economic transformation and where experience sharing between countries can be mutually beneficial.
 

 

Origin: Implementing the OECD Strategy on Development

  • This Initiative is part of the implementation of the OECD Strategy on Development, adopted by the OECD Council at Ministerial level in May 2012;
  • The changing global economic landscape poses new economic and policy challenges for development;
  • The OECD is actively engaged in promoting better policies to achieve sustainable and inclusive growth in the widest array of countries;
  • To achieve this objective the OECD is committed to share knowledge and invest in the generation of new information to improve the design and implementation of evidence-based policies.

 

2 Main Objectives

  • Improving measurement and evidence on new trends in global organisation of trade and production;
  • Identifying concrete policy recommendations to implement effective policies to promote development through better integration into GVCs.

 

Activities and Approach: Peer Learning and Better Evidence For Better Policies

  • 2 Plenary Meetings per year to identify better metrics and good practices to improve the effectiveness of policies based on open dialogue between OECD and non-OECD economies.
