Partnerships with Regional Organisations


Close co-operation with leading regional organisations has been and continues to be a key feature of the OECD's work in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), including via the OECD LAC Regional Programme. The OECD brings policy analysis expertise and identified best policy practices to the table, while regional organisations provide region-specific knowledge and capacity to develop concrete projects.

On 3 July the OECD and the European Commission's Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development (DG DEVCO), signed an agreement to become implementation partners in the framework of the EU Regional Facility for Development in Transition. The Facility hold its first Steering Committee and approved its first Action Plan.
