ESCWA Annual Report 2013

January 2014

During 2013, the Commission celebrated its 40th Anniversary and reiterated its commitment to member states and the overall prosperity of the Arab Region. Following a three pronged approach, the Commission sought in 2013 to assist member states in achieving economic and social integration, face the current challenges of transition through strengthened institutions, participation and enhanced capacities, and deliver equitable and sustainable growth for all. Moreover, ESCWA used its conveying power to lead extensive consultative processes in partnership with key regional actors to define regional priorities and identify concerns and aspirations of the Arab people in order to convey them in global platforms in the context of the post-2015 development agenda.  While working on regional priorities, ESCWA also worked with regional and international partners to implement a variety of technical cooperation projects catered to the specific needs of member states.
