OECD ICOM Guide for Cities and Museums on Culture and Local Development

Museums and cultural heritage sites are powerful assets for local development. This OECD-ICOM Guide advises museum and policymakers, both at the local and national level, on how to work better together for economic development and the well-being of local communities. 

A preliminary version of the guide was launched by Angel Gurria, OECD Secretary-General, and Peter Keller, ICOM Director General, at the Conference in Venice. The final version was launched on 5 September 2019.
