Abstract:

"Today, the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) marks its fortieth anniversary, as the Arab region is undergoing social and political changes that are impacting global trajectories and development paradigms. ESCWA is proud of its contribution to development thinking and gains in the region, and reaffirms its commitment to support Arab Governments and citizens in securing a just and dignified future for all. ESCWA works with the region, for the region. Its commitment is founded on a global development message that upholds the rights of all, regardless of ethnicity, affiliation or gender. The Commission works with Governments, civil society organizations and experts to build consensus and broker agreements. It ensures that development strategies and approaches reflect national political will, are based on facts and knowledge and are driven by a regional momentum that strengthens the position of Arab countries at international forums. Over the past 40 years, and under the leadership of various executive secretaries, ESCWA has strengthened its partnership with the League of Arab States in all sectors. The Arab region is rich and diverse, offering ample opportunities for economic, social, cultural and environmental integration. Similarities between countries increase the benefits of such integration, and data and current research support the regional integration approach, even though global and regional frameworks might sometimes appear less than supportive." --p. 2.
