MoU Joins ESCWA and Rotary Clubs on MDGs - 28 January 2013
In the presence of Deputy ESCWA Executive Secretary Nadim Khoury and a delegation of Rotary Club members, ESCWA today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Rotary Clubs-Lebanon. The MoU, signed by David Iyamah, Director of ESCWA Administrative Services Division on behalf of the Commission, and Samar Saab on behalf of Rotary clubs, concerns the printing and distribution of the Regional Millennium Development Report 2011 at the level of high schools and concerned university students and academia, as well as among research centres.
This step aims at making the report accessible to this social category, and informing it of the major developments and latest statistics on the achievement of MDGs in the region. To this end, an amendment in the original text that ESCWA issued was required, in a way that meets the needs of students, academia and researchers, and includes the latest developments in the region. Once printed, the book shall be launched in an official ceremony held at ESCWA, at a time that will be disclosed later.
