The current global political and economic setting is complex and fast-changing, with society transforming in ways that challenge existing views about the world and how it is governed. Technology is disrupting the status quo and creating a future of unknowns. Meanwhile, globalism has accelerated and a backlash has formed as a result of growing economic inequalities. Gender equality remains an uphill battle, conflict is forcing record numbers from their homes, trust in government is near record lows, and climate change and job automation crises are fast approaching.

Moreover, youth in the MENA region are facing higher unemployment levels than young people in any other region in the world.

Stocktaking report on MENA Public Procurement Systems

Public procurement is a crucial pillar of strategic governance and services delivery for governments. Because of the sheer volume of spending it represents, well-governed public procurement can and must play a major role in promoting public sector efficiency and establishing citizen trust. Well-designed public procurement systems also contribute to achieving pressing policy goals such as environmental protection, innovation, job creation and the development of small and medium-sized enterprises.
