The OECD LEED Delivering Local Development work stream examines the local and regional framework conditions and instruments for intervention to achieve successful local economic development in participating countries and localities. It covers strategic themes encompassing finance and investment, building the knowledge base, delivery vehicles and economic strategies (including the local development impacts from global events).

The work also identifies institutional capacities, intelligence, leadership interventions and development instruments which come together in the design and delivery of local development strategies. Detailed recommendations are aligned to the needs of national governments and localities and will cover established LEED thematic areas: delivery vehicles – agencies, companies and partnerships; financing local development; economic strategies; economic development catalysts; leadership and local development systems.
