image of OECD Regional Outlook 2014

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.

The New Regional Policy (NRP) was launched in 2008. A working group called “NPR 2016+” was created in 2012 with representatives from the Confederation and cantons, to evaluate the impact of the NRP for the first programming period 2008-15 in view of the preparation of the new multi-year programme 2016-23.
