4th OECD World Forum on Statistics, Knowledge and Policy: “Measuring Well-Being for Development and Policy Making”


The OECD has organised, jointly with the Government of India, the 4th OECD World Forum on Statistics, Knowledge and Policy under the theme “Measuring Well-Being for Development and Policy Making”. Building on the Better Life Initiative, the main objectives of the Forum are to further the discussions on the different aspects that make for a good life today and in the future in different countries of the world and to promote the development and use of new measures of well-being for effective and accountable policy-making. Thus, an important expected outcome of the Forum is to contribute to the post-2015 development agenda.

The four-day Forum will gather around 1,000 participants from all over the world, including policy-makers as well as representatives from international organisations, national statistical offices, government agencies, academia and civil society. It will include a combination of keynote speeches, round tables, and themed sessions on material conditions; quality of life; gender, minorities & life course perspectives; and sustainability. Each themed session will be organised around parallel sub-themed sessions involving speakers from different horizons.
