Focusing on people's well-being and societal progress, the OECD is looking at the functioning of the economic system but also at the diverse experiences and living conditions of people and households in its attempt to measure the well-being and progress of societies.
The European Commission, OECD and its Development Dentre and UN ECLAC are joining forces with countries in Latin America and the Caribbean to identify the most policy-relevant metrics for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), improving well-being, and leaving no-one behind.
The goal of this workshop is to assist national governments in developing innovative approaches to putting people’s well-being at the centre of public policy.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organisation that works to build better policies for better lives. Our goal is to shape policies that foster prosperity, equality, opportunity and well-being for all.
Are our lives getting better? How can policies improve our lives? Are we measuring the right things? The OECD Better Life Initiative and the work programme on Measuring Progress answer these questions. They allow understanding what drives well-being of people and nations and what needs to be done to achieve greater progress for all.
