New Approaches to Economic Challenges - Final Synthesis Report


"The OECD is learning lessons ... from recent crisis, current economic challenges, and history" - these are some of the chapter headings of the Final Synthesis Report of the OECD's New Approaches to Economic Challenges (NAEC) initiative, a comprehensive organisation-wide reflection process.

The report seeks to answer the following questions:

  • Why do we need new approaches to economic challenges?
  • What are the new approaches?
  • How will these new approaches help address future challenges?
  • How to foster continuous improvement going forward?

WWWforEurope has cooperated with the NAEC initiative in the past and it and some of its research results are mentioned in the Final Synthesis Report, which is available for download on the OECD's website (PDF link).
