At the OECD, we help governments design adaptive multi-level governance systems and innovative finance tools, to foster partnerships and ensure more effective investment outcomes, including to meet climate objectives in regions and cities.

COUNTRY REVIEWS

We collect and analyse data on subnational government structure and finance to support evidence-based policy-making.

 

We carry out a wide range of studies - from multi-level governance and decentralisation, to subnational public finance and climate-related investment in regions and cities.

 

We cover OECD Member countries and beyond, at the national and subnational levels.
