Rethinking Regional Attractiveness in the New Global Environment – OCED
Regional development, or ‘place-based’ policies are essential to enhance the performance and well-being in all regions. Place is a key theme of EDAS’ work strategy for 2021-2024, recognising that implementing a place-based approach can help reduce inequalities and boost sustainable development.
A new report published by the OECD highlights lessons learned from multiple regional case studies from five EU countries (Ireland, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Sweden), a series of webinars and one-on-one dialogues on rethinking regional attractiveness.
The report aims to help regional and national policy makers understand how individual regions are faring in a new global environment that continues to deal with the impact of COVID, compounded by the war in Ukraine. It also considers the need to co-ordinate approaches across levels of government, policy fields and prvate staeholders, highlight good practices to implement regional attractiveness policies.
