10 Feb 2020 -  The Bahrain Center for Strategic, International, and Energy Studies (DERASAT), Bahrain; the UN-Habitat Regional Office of Arab States; and UNDP Bahrain have joined forces to develop the “State of Arab Cities  Report 2020: Financing Sustainable Urban Development” to provide relevant insights on the multi-dimensional constraints hampering the transition of the Arab region from business-as-usual to increasingly sustainable and inclusive urban economy. The report explores the critical interlinkages between territorial development, effective finance and investment and enabled institutions, and to enhance understanding of the needed synergies and complementarities between public policies that will have profound impact on the urban development of the region.
