We provide policy advice and develop capacities for the effective design and implementation of policies that are tailored to local needs and focused on the key drivers of local economic growth and well-being in OECD Member and non-Member countries
Build your local development capacities
The OECD Trento Centre for Local Development offers a rich institution and capacity building agenda dedicated to policy makers and practitioners in the fields of spatial productivity, culture and integrated local development, allowing them to acquire practical knowledge needed to achieve policy goals.
Capacity building is creating, developing and strengthening the abilities of organisations, communities and individuals to confront challenges and achieve goals, work collectively across institutional lines and policy silos and develop synergies.
Today, OECD countries face two major productivity challenges, decreasing growth and increasing inequality. The main question for the Spatial Productivity Lab is how regional, rural and urban policy can help find a more inclusive and dynamic system for economic growth.
The OECD LEED Trento Centre is supported by the Autonomous Province of Trento (Italy), the Foundation of Venice (Italy), the Autonomous Province of Bolzano-Südtirol (Italy) and the Autonomous Region of Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol (Italy)
