We are working in 12 Arab countries with 9 national networks (with an extended membership of 250 CSOs from different backgrounds) and 23 NGO members.
During the IMF/WBG Spring meetings that took place in April, 2017 in Washington DC, the Arab NGO Network for Development ANND convened a panel discussion aiming to improve the World Bank and IMF’s influential economic policies in five Arab emerging markets (Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, Morocco and Jordan) by featuring the facts, analyses and recommendations included in the recently released “Articles IV” and “Request for Extended Arrangement under the Extended Fund Facility” reports and reacting to them from a rights-based and social justice perspective. These five national position papers were thus presented there in addition to a regional brief building on a thorough review of the latest MENA Outlook and Monitor, which triggered a deep discussing and brought up many necessary reforms as depicted in the research outcomes. These papers have, since then, been updated according the discussions and the latest changes.
