SURVEY: Local Responses to the Crisis


"Is your locality affected by the crisis?”

“What is being done to address the problems?"

“Do you want to know what others are doing?"



The OECD FORUM ON PARTNERSHIPS and LOCAL GOVERNANCE invites you to share your experience by filling in a simple questionnaire

The results will be processed and fed back to all Forum members*



The survey is undertaken in response to the demands of participants of the 5th Annual Meeting of the OECD LEED Forum on Partnerships and Local Governance, held in Vienna, Austria, on 9–10 February 2009. We thank everyone who joined the discussion on an issue of central importance to most partnerships today: How can collaboration with the private sector be strengthened to deliver better and more sustainable outcomes on the labour market?


The 5th Annual Meeting has examined some of the most advanced partnership innovations in connecting business with other stakeholders locally to generate better jobs and inclusion. It has reviewed a wide array of initiatives, from the US’ pioneering approach with the Workforce Investment Boards to Denmark’s new Regional Growth Fora and the UK’s Regional Skills Partnerships and brand new Training and Employment Boards. All materials, presentations, videos and photos are available at the event web page.
