To facilitate policymaking
2020 – Ongoing
In some Arab countries, the bodies responsible for setting national plans often lack strategy or policy tools to achieve stated targets. They also suffer from major difficulties in collecting and producing information about the status of the economy, from insufficient coherence within and across national priorities, or from a lack of broad national commitment to ensuring the implementation of reforms.
ESCWA provides its member States with technical support to identify their national strengths and weaknesses through regional and international indicators to improve policymaking. It is building an interactive tool that simulates the main development indicators and shows the impact of changing input variables on a country’s total score. This tool will use available data and information related to these indicators.
