Forum of Ministers for Social Development from the Maghreb Region, Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon

On the initiative of Morocco’s Minister for Social Development, the Family and Solidarity, the Forum was officially launched during a meeting which took place in Marrakech (Morocco), from 30 April to 1 May 2007.

The Forum brings together Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Mauritania and Tunisia. It is the fifth regional forum to have been created since UNESCO’s MOST programme first launched the initiative of providing a forum for policy makers and researchers in the social sciences.

Its aim is to identify the region’s priority needs and set up a sustainable structure to respond to those needs.
