2021 - Arab Watch Report: Questioning the role of the private sector in development

The Arab Watch is one of the many programs managed by ANND, currently involved in the creation of the Private Sector Performance Observatory, which will monitor the performance of private sector actors involved in the development process, partnerships for development, and in implementing projects in partnership with the public sector. Monitoring activities also involve international financial and trade institutions and various UN processes, in particular the 2030 Agenda for Action, through engagement in the Refection Group on Sustainable Development and other economic and social rights tracks, including the Universal Periodic Review (UPR).
