    Ministerial Meeting of the OECD on Regional Development Policy

    For many years, mainstream economics touted mobility as the silver bullet for addressing regional inequalities. Can’t find a job? Move to a place where you can. Housing too expensive? People will move to a more affordable community and prices will eventually settle.

    OECD Regional Outlook 2019 - Leveraging Megatrends for Cities and Rural Areas

    Large and persistent inequalities in regional economic performance within countries exist throughout the OECD. The 2019 Regional Outlook discusses the underlying causes of economic disparities across regions and highlights the need for place-based policies to address them. The report makes the case that place-based policies are especially important in light of growing public discontent with the economic, social and political status quo in many regions. The geographical patterns of public discontent are closely related to the degree of regional inequalities and policies to address public discontent need to have a place-based dimension.Place-based policies will become even more important in the future due to several technological, demographic and environmental megatrends. This Regional Outlook emphasises that all regions will be affected by these megatrends, but their effects will vary from region to region, even within the same country. Appropriate policy responses need to take this diversity into account and should be tailored to the region-specific impacts of global megatrends. Insofar as possible, this Regional Outlook presents steps that policy makers can take today to make the next generation of regional policies fit for the future.

    Governments need to act today to ward off deepening divides across regions

    Governments should take specific actions now to ward off deepening divides across regions and seize new opportunities in the face of global “megatrends”, the OECD said this week. Two new OECD reports highlight that regions are not equally equipped to handle future technological changes, ageing, climate change and other megatrends; and that decentralisation policies need to work more effectively.

    SIGI 2019 Global Report - Transforming Challenges into Opportunities

    Over the past decade, the Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI) has consistently shown that governments need to look at discriminatory laws, social norms and practices to achieve gender equality and promote women’s empowerment. This 2019 global report provides an overview of the main outcomes of the SIGI in relation to women and the family, their physical integrity, access to productive and financial resources and their civic rights. Building on these outcomes, this report provides a set of policy recommendations to enhance governments’ efforts to deliver their gender-equality commitments through a three-pronged approach: starting with legal reforms and transformative gender policies, enforcing laws through community mobilisation and empowerment, and learning about the efficiency of policy through monitoring.
