Lara Fleischer

Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development

Lara Fleischer leads the OECD’s efforts on benchmarking how countries are performing when it comes to well-being (to determine whether life is getting better for people, the planet and future generations). Her unit also supports countries to collect internationally harmonised data on well-being aspects often thought of as intangible (e.g., trust, subjective well-being, population mental health), evaluates systemic solutions that address the causes of well-being inequalities, and enables peer-learning for member countries on implementing well-being approaches in policy practice. Prior to joining the OECD, Lara spent several years in Kenya and Sierra Leone, applying behavioural insights to emerging economy contexts. She holds an MPhil in Development Studies from Oxford University.
