The Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) aims, through economic monitoring, research, knowledge management, policy advice and capacity-building, to help the Arab region to attain long-term dynamic growth and equitable development. ESCWA should lead the way on economic development and regional integration by identifying looming development challenges and providing the appropriate policy support.
It strives to foster collaborative economic research with regional and global institutions, develop ahead-of-the-curve research, and translate policy recommendations into capacity development and specific programmes.
