This event is part of an open working process, started in 2011, which promotes an international dialogue and experience sharing in Local Economic Development (LED). It provides the opportunity to transform a global alliance of engaged actors into concrete partnerships at the country and local level.
The Forum will constitute a platform for dialogue on key issues such as poverty eradication, employment and decent work, sustainable entrepreneurship, multi-stakeholder partnerships, including the involvement of civil society, workers’ and employers’ organizations. The International Labour Orgnaization (ILO) is one of the organizing partners.
The Forum is an ongoing process, which culminates every two years with a world event. It began in 2011 in Seville, Spain, with the first edition of the World Forum of Local Economic Development. The second edition followed in 2013 in Foz do Iguacu, Brazil, and the third edition was held in 2015 in Turin, Italy.
