The outbreak of external factors such COVID-19, is threatening decades of development gains, further delaying the urgent transition to greener, more inclusive economies, and throwing progress on the SDGs even further off track.

Progress had been made in poverty reduction, maternal and child health, access to electricity, and gender equality, but not enough to achieve the Goals by 2030.

The State of Democracy in Africa and The Middle East 2021

Submitted by on Thu, 05/05/2022 - 16:32

There has been a gradual decline in democratic quality in Africa for the first time in almost a decade and the Middle East are not exempt.
