[Policy Dialogue] What Growth Strategies for the Mediterranean in Today’s Context?

  • Starts: Jun 08, 2022
  • Ends: Jun 08, 2022
  • Location: Marseille & Virtual
  • By: CMI, OECD, Growth Dialogue
  • CONTEXT

     

    The global pandemic prompted a re-examination of existing development strategies. To provide for more sustainable and equitable income generation for people in the Mediterranean region, a reassessment of growth strategies is important - a need that appears today all the more important in light of the war in Ukraine, with rising inflation and supply chains that feed the world with essential goods suffering disruptions, leading to increased food insecurity and risks of energy supply discontinuity. 

     

    OBJECTIVES

     

    This joint CMI-OECD-Growth Dialogue event will discuss ideas and policy directions for recovery in Southern Mediterranean countries, in light of the changes in the global economy that were already underway but that have been made more prominent by the recent events. 

     

    The discussion will focus on two topics. 

     

    [Session I] Policies for post-COVID recovery in the Mediterranean and regional cooperation

     

    Speakers will reflect on policies for sustainable recovery and how they differ from pre-crisis policies for sustainable development. More specifically, they will address the following questions: Is a change of existing growth policies needed? What type of regional cooperation can facilitate achieving these objectives and how can it be promoted? 

     

    [Session 2] Productivity, green transition, innovation and social inclusion: Dealing with multiple objectives for recovery in the Mediterranean

     

    Speakers will debate about the relation between the multiple objectives of a sustainable post-COVID recovery in MENA countries, from green transition to social inclusion, to industrial diversification, to innovation and to increasing productivity. More specifically, they will address the following questions: What are the priorities? Can everything be achieved and how?
