Through plenary sessions, workshops, and site visits across two countries, attendees will gain valuable insights into sustainable development strategies.

The OECD Local Development Forum acts as a hub for a global community committed to creating resilient, inclusive, and sustainable communities. Participants include representatives from governments, development agencies, businesses, and NGOs, all working together to drive positive change at the grassroots level.

Beyond its annual gathering, the forum serves as a platform for peer learning and the exchange of best practices on a global scale. By bridging the gap between policy and implementation, it amplifies the impact of local initiatives and enriches the OECD’s engagement with communities worldwide.
