Education & Training
The AIDPS Education programme aims at introducing reforms to better position MENA public and private institutions to meet the evolving demands of an education system in the twenty-first century. These will lead to improved quality of learning for MENA students at schools, vocational institutes and universities.
The education reform strategy sets out a comprehensive, interrelated plan of action. Optimal benefits and sustainable impact will be achieved through this approach, which ensures that students are at the centre of the system, teachers are supported, schools are empowered and the whole education system is strengthened.More »
Empowering women to participate fully in economic life across all sectors is essential to build stronger economies, achieve internationally agreed goals for development and sustainability, and improve the quality of life for women, men, families and communities. The private sector is a key partner in efforts to advance gender equality and empower women. Current research demonstrating that gender diversity helps businesses perform better signals that self-interest and common interest can come together.
Refugees & Displacement
More and more people are on the move today compared to any other point in human history. In 2013, the United Nations estimated that there were 232 million international migrants globally, nearly half of whom were women. Conflict and violence have forcibly displaced 60 million people worldwide, over 38 million of whom are internally displaced, and 19 million refugees. This is the highest number of displaced persons the world has seen since World War II.
Our sustainable development goals include promoting sustained, inclusive and sustainble economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all; Building resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization and foster innovation; reducing inequality within and among countries of the MENA Region; promoting peaceful and inclusive socieites for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions for all.
Working for Peace
Our aspiration is to live in a secure, peaceful and prosperous Arab World, working in partnership with all countries of the world to best serve the interests of MENA peoples, ensure their wellbeing and provide for a better standard of living. MENA region has great potential. We at AIDPS strongly believe that peace, stability, better economic conditions and job creation will give our youth the incentive to lead useful lives without feelings of bitterness and animosity. This can only be achieve if the people of the region, without exception, work together to improve the quality of life for all.
