CSOs Assess Sustainable-development Policies

HIC-HLRN participated with Arab NGO Network for Development (ANND) in the “Regional CSO Forum on Sustainable Development,” on 13–14 March 2022 at Beirut, Lebanon. The gathering of diverse policy analysts representing the Middle East/North Africa region’s civil society covered the range of contemporary development issues represented in the Sustainable-development Goals (SDGs) in the regional context.
