Despite significant progress in health and
education levels, women in the MENA region
are still significantly under-represented in the
labor market, and in political institutions
Limited job creation in the private sector and
high levels of unemployment are posing a strain
on MENA economies, leading to brain drain and
economic stagnation or even contraction 
As urban centers in MENA grow in size, their
populations become exposed to the increasing
effects of climate change as well as man-made
and natural disasters
