Tangier – At an international conference on human development methods and evaluation approaches to equality for new generations, Roberto Benes of UNICEF’s MENA Regional Office praised Morocco’s leadership in the field of equality, social protection, and improvement for disadvantaged social groups, according to Maghreb Arab Press.
Speaking on Wednesday in Rabat, Benes said, “UNICEF is happy to support efforts by Morocco in human development and fighting poverty through social policies.”
A number of experts on the subject attended the international conference, calling upon participants to share their experiences and strengthen cooperation. Practitioners came from Sub-Saharan African countries to share their knowledge and expertise in evaluating human development, fighting poverty, and implementing public policy.
The evaluation of public policies is “crucial to ensure the effectiveness of public spending,” said UN Resident Coordinator in Morocco, Bruno Pouezat, in a statement to Maghreb Arab Press.
The meeting, held in Rabat, was organized by the National Observatory for Human Development (ONDH) in corporation with United Nations agencies and the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
