The OECD Centre on Well-being, Inclusion, Sustainability and Equal Opportunity (WISE) is generating new data and solutions to improve people’s well-being, reduce inequalities, and better understand the impact of policies and business actions on people’s lives. Here you will find expert assessments on what makes a “good life” across societies, targeted policy briefs on the impact of COVID-19 and the direction of the recovery agenda, and working and policy papers on how to improve the measurement of well-being and inequalities, and to help understand the drivers of these issues. The common thread across our analysis? The provision of timely policy advice that addresses today’s challenges while keeping long-term objectives in mind, always putting people’s well-being at the top of the agenda.
WISE Centre Policy Briefs
These briefs allow you to learn more about the WISE Centre’s latest work in just a few pages. Topics currently include the measurement of child well-being and inequalities in household wealth. We will soon explore how countries can measure the road to recovery, the relationship between inequality perceptions and demand for redistribution, the impact of COVID-19 on people’s well-being, how countries are progressing on the SDGs, and more.
How do we build back better from the COVID-19 pandemic? These policy responses analyse the impact of the pandemic on some of the most vulnerable groups within our societies, and provide advice on how to develop inclusive recovery strategies that leave no one behind.
Working Papers and Policy Papers on Well-being and Inequalities
This series features working papers on the measurement agenda for well-being, inclusion, sustainability and equal opportunity as well as policy papers seeking to deepen the understanding of the drivers of these issues, the ways in which they interact and how they evolve.
