The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an international organization that works to build better policies for a better life. Its goal is to shape policies that promote prosperity, equality, opportunity and well-being for all, 60 years of experience and insights to better prepare the world of tomorrow.
Together with governments, policy makers and citizens, the OECD works to set evidence-based international standards and find solutions to a range of social, economic and environmental challenges. From improving economic performance and job creation to promoting robust education and combating international tax evasion, it offers a unique forum and knowledge hub for data and analysis, sharing experiences, sharing best practices, and advising on public policy and international standard setting.

Through standards, programs and initiatives, it helps advance and entrench reform in more than 100 countries around the world, based on shared values.
Today, the 38 member states span the world, from North and South America to Europe, Asia and the Pacific.
