Organising Local Economic Development

The Role of Development Agencies and Companies

image of Organising Local Economic Development

Development processes occur within a wider geographical area than local government, and in some cases encompass a broader scope than provincial or national governments. Thus substantial inter-governmental co-operation and public-private partnership are needed. This book identifies how development agencies and companies work, what they do and what constitutes success and value added. It explores international practices in a variety of locations and contexts, and defines both the success factors and the challenges associated with economic development agencies and companies.

Foreword

The OECD Programme on Local Economic and Employment Development (LEED) has advised governments and communities since 1982 on how to adapt to global trends and tackle complex problems in a fast-changing world. It combines expertise from America, Australasia and Europe into pragmatic task forces that provide rapid responses and targeted advice on specific issues. It draws on a comparative analysis of experience from some 50 countries around the world in fostering economic growth, employment and inclusion.
