Finland by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
117 editions published between 1968 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,923 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Finland is one of the most rural countries within the OECD, and it is also one of the early adopters of a multi-sectoral approach to rural policy. The Finnish model of rural policy has been reasonably successful in achieving coherence among sectoral policies oriented to rural areas (the so-called broad rural policy) and in tailoring specific programs to promote rural development (the so-called narrow rural policy). This review examines developments in Finnish rural policy since the last review in 1995, examining in particular public service delivery and competitiveness and business environment policies.--Publisher's description
Netherlands by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
136 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rather than pursuing e-government as an end in itself, the Netherlands is seeking to use ICT tools to reduce administrative burdens and improve service delivery. Internationally, the Netherlands is at the forefront of administrative burden reduction, which is a major political priority and an important justification for e-government development. This volume examines questions such as whether the goal of reducing administrative burdens is sufficient in itself for e-government to transform public administrations. Further, how can the public sector build partnerships across levels of government to deliver ICT-enabled end-to-end services that simplify the relationship with citizens and businesses?--Publisher's description
Norway by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )

Any foreseeable restructuring of the Norwegian economy compatible with this goal will entail a shift towards knowledge-based activities for which innovation is the key determinant of competitiveness. This report assesses the current status of Norway's innovation system and policies, and identifies where and how the government should focus its efforts to improve the country's innovation capabilities.--Publisher's description

Korea by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
92 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and French and held by 1,485 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the first review in 2000, Korea has made bold efforts to enhance conditions for long term growth: promoting regulatory reform, cutting red tape, strengthening competition policy and market openness. The Korean government has also modernized its regulatory framework for information technologies, an area where Korea plays a leading role among OECD countries. This publication assesses progress since 2000 and analyzes many of the lessons of implementation of regulatory reform. It highlights possible responses to current challenges, including the pressures of an aging society, future welfare needs and human capital development. The study includes a new special chapter on tertiary education, where improvements in the regulatory framework can yield significant benefits for future innovation and productivity.--Publisher's description
Spain by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
128 editions published between 1962 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Spain has recently undertaken a major reform of its rural policies, including the merger of the Ministry of Agriculture with the Ministry of the Environment and the recently approved Law on Sustainable Development of Rural Areas. This new framework creates a multi-sectoral and place-based "rural policy of state", making Spain better equipped to address the challenges and opportunities of rural areas. This report - undertaken at the same time as the reforms were being implemented - will interest both policy makers engaged in similar reform processes and others working on issues such the "political economy" of reforms, rural tourism, renewable energies, rural clusters, development of peri-urban areas and public service delivery in remote rural areas.--Publisher's description

In many OECD countries, tertiary education systems have experienced rapid growth over the last decade. With tertiary education increasingly seen as a fundamental pillar for economic growth, these systems must now address the pressures of a globalising economy and labour market. Within governance frameworks that encourage institutions, individually and collectively, to fulfil multiple missions, tertiary education systems must aim for the broad objectives of growth, full employment and social cohesion. In this context, the OECD launched a major review of tertiary education with the particip

Denmark by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
131 editions published between 1960 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the face of rapid population aging and the trend towards early retirement, there is a need to promote better employment opportunities for older people. Much has been said about the need for reform of old-age pensions and early retirement schemes but this may not be sufficient to raise employment rates for older people significantly or to reduce the future risk of labor shortages. Both governments and firms will need to take active measures to adapt wage setting to aging workforces, to address the extent to which other welfare schemes act as pathways to early retirement, to tackle age discrimination and to improve the job skills and working conditions of older workers. In addition, older workers will need to change their own attitudes towards working longer and acquiring new skills. Little is known about what countries have been doing or should be doing in these areas. This report on Denmark is part of a series of 21 OECD country reports intended to fill this gap. It contains a survey of the main barriers to employment for older workers, an assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of existing measures to overcome these barriers and a set of policy recommendations for further action by the public authorities and social partners.--Publisher summary

Turkey by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
110 editions published between 1961 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Turkey's e-government efforts received new emphasis in the last three years. The election of a new government brought forward an agenda including public sector modernization using e-government. Turkey has since made considerable progress with e-government. This review identifies several strategic opportunities. One opportunity is to stimulate the provision of e-services and e-commerce by increasing access to high-speed Internet throughout the country. A second opportunity is to skip the initial stages of e-government applications -- characterized by isolated islands of development -- and instead promote a more "joined up" government. A third opportunity is to use the existing base of 46 million mobile telephones as a communication channel between the government and its citizens. The review also identifies several major challenges. One challenge is bridging the digital divide between urban and rural populations, men and women, and young and old. A second challenge is public sector modernization in terms of increased transparency and accountability. A third challenge is making sure that investments in e-government are valuable, i.e. that benefits are larger than costs.--Publisher's description
Italy by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ( Book )
106 editions published between 1963 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This publication presents OECD's comprehensive review of rural policy in Italy. On average, rural regions in Italy have some of the highest GDP per capita among the OECD countries, yet unexploited potential remains. This analysis of rural Italy reveals heterogeneous economic conditions, an increasing elderly population and a diminished focus on environmental concerns. This suggests the need for a broader rural policy approach that reflects the changing demands upon rural resources and that considers other aspects of rurality including health, education and quality of life.--Publisher's description
