LEED Programme (Local Economic and Employment Development)

LEED Trento Centre (Italy)



Build your local development capacities

The OECD enhances its capacity building agenda for local development: the best policy reforms will fail if no effective mechanisms are in place to deliver them. The OECD has enhanced its partnership with Italy and scaled up its effort to close the implementation gap in OECD Member and non Member countries.

The mandate of the OECD LEED Trento Centre for Local Development has been renewed until 2020 and a new satellite office created in Venice to increase the capacity building offer. The Trento Centre and its Venice office are part of the OECD LEED Programme and will offer a rich institution and capacity building agenda dedicated to policy makers and practitioners in the fields of employment and skills, entrepreneurship, social economy, smarter local development, and allowing them to acquire the practical knowledge they need to achieve their goals.

Through its activities the OECD LEED Trento Centre for Local Development seeks to 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.
