Organisation for Economic Co-operation and

    co-ordinate domestic and international policies.

  • Created in 1982 to focus on employment generation
    at local level
  • LEED FOCUS ON LOCAL DRIVERS OF GROWTH

    growth for which no single public authority is
    responsible
  • Local action Drivers cannot solely be fuelled at
    nation level
  • Participation government cannot support drivers
    of growth on its own roles must be played by
    business and civil society

Why look at partnerships?
  • Between 1999 and 2003, the OECD conducted an
    in-depth study of area-based partnerships in
    which it examined the experience of 14 countries
  • Partnerships
  • _ improve policy co-ordination and adaptation to
    local conditions
  • _ lead to better utilisation and targeting of
    programmes
  • _ integrate civil societys concerns into
    strategic planning exercises through
    more widespread participatory democracy
  • _ stimulate corporate involvement in local
    projects and
  • _ promote greater satisfaction with public
    policy.
  • (OECD Local Partnerships for better Governance,
    2001)

LEED work on partnerships
  • Barriers for partnership working
  • disconnection between national policy objectives
    and local goals. This can happen even when
    national ministries set the goals for
    partnerships and are represented in the
    partnerships
  • the limited administrative flexibility of many
    public programmes, including those which are
    relevant to local economic and employment
    development
  • weak accountability relationships, between the
    various partners, between the partnership and the
    public, and between the representatives and their
    constituency and
  • a tendency for partnership-based organisations to
    be process-driven as they seek to secure their
    continuity.

  • _ MULTI-SECTORAL Multi-sectoral (or
    cross-sectoral) partnerships involve
    stakeholders representing various economic
    sectors/branches, governmental and
    non-governmental actors seeking to improve the
    co-ordination between labour market,
    education, economic and social policies at local
