Launch of the MENA Chapter of the Parliamentary Network on the World Bank & the IMF
Submitted by AGORA moderator on
The series of uprisings that swept across the MENA region since the beginning of 2011 have brought to the fore the critical importance of good governance and accountability to achieve sustainable development.
As representatives of the people, parliamentarians are set to play integral part in fulfilling that mandate. Building on this important momentum, the MENA chapter of the Parliamentary Network would act as a platform for parliamentarians from the region to exchange knowledge and experiences on best practices on how to leverage their legislative and oversight roles in tackling pressing development challenges. The launch event will cast light on the critical development issue of youth unemployment.
