OECD and Renewable Energy

I have been involved in one way or the other with OECD since about 1974 when I went to the OECD development centre for a seminar on international tourism and development. But my main involvement has been since 1982, on rural public governance and rural and territorial policies. In this I have been lucky to work with, among others, Heino von Meyer, Dick Long, Mario Pezzini, Nicola Crosta, David Freshwater and Raffaele Trapasso and his team. I was one of the background researchers and writers for the OECD New Rural Paradigm (2006), and am currently an international expert on their project on ‘renewable energy as a rural development policy’ in selected rural regions of Canada, USA, the Nordic Countries, the Netherlands, Spain, UK and Italy.

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) mission is to “promote policies that will improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.” It is a talking shop and think tank for Government policy makers, and focusing on public policies.
