05/09/2016 - Advance sales are now open for the 2016 edition of OECD LEED’s flagship publication, Job Creation and Local Economic Development.
This second edition of Job Creation and Local Economic Development examines how national and local actors can better work together to support economic development and job creation at the local level. It sheds light on a continuum of issues – from how skills policy can better meet the needs of local communities, to how local actors can better engage employers in apprenticeships, to how to improve the implementation of SME and entrepreneurship policy.
It includes international comparisons that allow local areas to take stock of how they are performing in the marketplace for skills and jobs. It also includes a set of country profiles featuring, among other things, new data on skills supply and demand at the level of OECD sub-regions (TL3).
It is designed to be user friendly and accessible to all government officials, academics, practitioners and civil society with an interest in local economic development and job creation.
Through this advance sale, it is available for only 12.77 € per copy (compared to the normal price of 75 € per copy).
Advance sales close 12 September. After that date, the publication will only be available at the full price.
