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 (Local Economic and Employment Development) 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.

Spatial Productivity Lab (SPL)
Today, OECD countries face two major productivity challenges, decreasing growth and increasing inequality. The main question for the Spatial Productivity Lab is how regional, rural and urban policy can help find a more inclusive and dynamic system for economic growth.
As part of the broader OECD work on productivity, the Spatial Productivity Lab in coordination with the OECD Global Forum on Productivity is developing OECD analysis on the concept of spatial productivity.
