OECD Regional Outlook 2014

Regions and Cities: Where Policies and People Meet

Regions and cities are on the front lines of many challenges faced by OECD countries today, from education and jobs to health care and quality of life. Getting regions and cities "right", adapting policies to the specificities of where people live and work,  is vital to improving citizens’ well-being. This second edition of the OECD Regional Outlook aims to help countries do just that. Part I describes the main trends and challenges today. Part II has a special focus on cities, looking at public investment, urban framework policies, and rural-urban issues. Part III presents a Policy Forum on the future of cities, with five contributions from distinguished authors and policy makers. Part IV offers profiles of regional development in all 34 OECD countries.

Hide / Show Abstract

The Tenth National Development Plan (2014-18) has recently been published and establishes the medium-term priorities of Turkey in terms of regional policy. Under the plan, regional development policies will contribute to national development, competitiveness and employment by increasing the productivity of regions, while addressing the basic objective of reducing regional and rural-urban disparities. Priority areas include: increasing the consistency and effectiveness of policies at the central level, creating a development environment based on local dynamics, increasing institutional capacity at the local level and accelerating rural development.
