The Global Forum for Development 2014 aims at assessing the contribution of innovation in tackling structural development challenges, and lagging productivity in particular, as a means to achieve more sustained and inclusive growth.

Policy makers and experts from OECD, emerging and developing economies will look at the role of innovation in development from several points of view:

  1. What is the potential for innovation policies and systems to unleash new sources of growth and overcome structural bottlenecks to development? What strategies and policies work best to support innovation and productivity growth?
  2. What are innovative approaches and partnerships to support developing country efforts at achieving more inclusive development? What is the role of providers of development cooperation, South-South partners and the private sector?
  3. What kind of innovation can best deliver inclusive development and reach the poor?

The 2014 edition is organised by the OECD Development Centre (DEV) and Development Co-operation Directorate (DCD) in co-operation with the Science and Technology Directorate (STI).
