OECD LEED Forum on Partnerships and Local Governance

6th Annual Meeting

Datum: 16. - 17. Februar 2010

The 6th Annual Meeting of the OECD LEED Forum on Partnerships and Local Governance will be addressing an issue of central importance to most partnerships today:





Although the latest economic indicators suggest that a recovery may be in sight, the experience of previous economic downturns shows that it will take long before employment gets back to pre-recession levels. There is also a major risk that many of the unemployed drift into long-term unemployment and lose connection with the labour market and a large share of today's unemployment becomes structural in nature in the next years.

The OECD LEED Forum on Partnerships and Local Governance has been established to support area based partnerships in their mission, by gathering knowledge and providing advice on the most effective mechanisms for organisations to work together, adapt policies to local needs and set up appropriate initiatives. The 5th Annual Meeting will examine some of the most advanced partnership innovations in connecting business with other stakeholders locally to generate better jobs and inclusion. It will review a wide array of initiatives, from the US pioneering approach with the Workforce Investment Boards to Denmark's new Regional Growth Fora and the UK's Regional Skills Partnerships and brand new Training and Employment Boards. It will work to extract from these approaches, and the experience of several other countries, the lessons to apply by both policymakers and practitioners for providing a collective response from industry, government, educational institutions and community that improves economic sustainability and growth.
