    National Urban Policy Review of Colombia

    This OECD National Urban Policy Review of Colombia provides a comprehensive assessment of the country’s national urban policy ‘the System of Cities’ and of different sectoral policies that affect urban life: transport, housing, land use, and digitalisation. Colombia has entered the 2020s facing five intertwined crises: the COVID-19 pandemic, rising levels of poverty and inequality, a wave of mass international migration, the peace process consolidation, and the climate emergency. As the country seeks an answer to all those challenges, Colombia’s social and economic prosperity and environmental sustainability will be more tightly linked to the functioning of its cities and its urban governance system. This OECD review makes the case for an integrated, placed-based and inclusive urban development model and urban agenda that seize immediate opportunities that arise in fiscal, economic and sectorial policies, and protect hard-won gains from years of experience of urban policy implementation in the country. Designing a new national urban policy for Colombia – Ciudades 4.0 – demands a critical rethinking of whether urban areas are meeting the needs of all Colombians, and how different urban-related policies could help transform them for the better.

    Promoting Start-Ups and Scale-Ups in Denmark’s Sector Strongholds and Emerging Industries

    Start-ups and scale-ups often make outsized contributions to innovation and job creation. However, while entrepreneurial ecosystems in countries and regions are increasingly studied, less is known about differences by sector. What role do start-ups and scale-ups play in the development of different future growth sectors? What problems and bottlenecks does government policy need to address? To what extent do the start-up and scale-up contributions and obstacles vary by sector, and what is in common across sectors? This report examines the entrepreneurial ecosystems of three of Denmark's sector strongholds, sectors where future growth is likely to be generated - advanced production, energy technology and food and bio resources. A focus on Denmark includes the scale and nature of start-ups and scale-ups in different sectors, the bottlenecks, the current policies and how they can be refined. In addition, nine international policy experiences are presented as inspiring practices for Denmark and other countries - covering Austria, Canada, Finland, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Recommendations are offered for Denmark across areas such as entrepreneurial finance, networks, public procurement, and cluster management organisations, covering both cross-sector and sector-specific recommendations.

    Financing transportation infrastructure through Land Value Capture - Concepts, tools, and case studies

    With tightening public finances, land value capture (LVC) can be an attractive fiscal tool to finance ever-increasing demands for transport infrastructure. This paper begins by discussing the principles of LVC and individual LVC instruments in the context of infrastructure provision, with a focus on the opportunities and challenges for LVC implementation. It then presents unique case studies of LVC use in France, Japan, Korea and the United Kingdom, highlighting how it was used to fund the construction of major subways and railways. Based on these case studies, the paper discusses some key insights, including how to use LVC together with expropriation, enacting enabling legal frameworks, and diversifying revenue streams. It also highlights some common considerations for successful implementation, most notably for eliciting public support, promoting transit-oriented development, and establishing fair and transparent rules for LVC.

    Améliorer l’intégration locale des migrants - Les Contrats territoriaux d’accueil et d’intégration des réfugiés

    L’intégration des migrants permet non seulement leur propre développement socio-économique mais contribue aussi au développement et à la résilience des régions qui les accueillent. Or, l’intégration locale résulte de différentes politiques conçues et mises en œuvres par différents acteurs à différents niveaux de gouvernement. Une première étape pour améliorer l’intégration est donc de savoir « qui fait quoi ». L’OCDE s’est attachée à répondre à cette question en proposant un outil matriciel permettant de comparer l’allocation des compétences dans les domaines de l’emploi, de l’éducation, du logement, de l’aide sociale et de la santé dans dix pays de l’OCDE - Allemagne, Autriche, Canada, Espagne, France, Irlande, Italie, Nouvelle-Zélande, Pays-Bas et Suède. Les messages clés de ce travail sont présentés en première partie de ce document. Ils soulignent la grande complexité de l’action publique et la nécessité d’une coordination efficace entre les parties prenantes. Pour répondre à ce besoin de gouvernance pluri-niveaux et améliorer l'intégration des migrants, différents instruments politiques sont mobilisés par les pays. Les Contrats territoriaux d'accueil et d'intégration des réfugiés (CTAIR) signés en France entre l’État et des grandes villes sont ici analysés.

    Designing Legal Frameworks for Social Enterprises - Practical Guidance for Policy Makers

    Increasingly, countries are recognising the contribution social enterprises make to economic and inclusive growth and sustainable development. While some form of legislation on social enterprises exists in 16 EU countries, and explicit policies or strategies to boost their development exist in the other 11 EU countries, policy makers recognise that legislation can help address current shortcomings and facilitate future social enterprise development. Based on consultations with more than 80 experts, policy makers and stakeholders from 10 European countries, this manual explains the rationale behind legal frameworks for social enterprises, identifies the critical factors for legal framework design and recommends actions to ensure legislation fully meets the needs of social enterprises. It lays out the fundamental steps related to the life cycle of legal frameworks and provides options that policy makers can use in the design and implementation process.
