Survey of Economic and Social Developments in the ESCWA Region, 2010-2011
مسح للتطورات الاقتصادية والاجتماعية في منطقة الإسكوا، 2010-2011

The 2010- 2011 Economic and Social Survey by ESCWA reflects the dramatic changes the region witnessed in passing from the first to the second decade of the 21st century. The survey makes observations, provides data and attempts to understand and explain the dynamics of regional, sub-regional and country social and economic trends. Its objective is to provide interested readers, governments, and the general public with a snapshot of the current socioeconomic situation and the outlook for 2012. The Survey contains two main parts: First, it discusses sustainable socio-economic development in the region by focusing recent socio-economic and political developments such as oil sector development, growth and inflation, fiscal policy and so on. Given its importance, a sub-chapter is dedicated to the discussion of green economy as a development and poverty alleviation option. Second, the survey provides a detailed overview on the status of social policy in the ESCWA region and post-Arab Spring by discussion education, health care, social protection and labour market issues. The survey concludes with a set of policy recommendations.
