 Marrakech, 22 November 2009




Organised back to back with the 2009 MENA-OECD Ministerial Conference, the Governance Forum was held on 22 November 2009 in Marrakech, offering the opportunity for policy-makers, experts, and representatives from civil society and media to debate on governance for economic recovery and sustainable growth, taking into consideration the needs of citizens, programmes of the public administration, the demands of society, and the environmental challenges. It was also an occasion to support national reform through joint learning and to develop further effective mechanisms for regional and international cooperation.

The forum was organised around two important themes: “making governments effective in delivering sustainable and inclusive economic growth”, and “emerging challenges for successful policy implementation, involving local authorities, civil society and the media.”
The conclusions of the Forum have enriched the discussions of the Ministerial Conference which was held on 23 November 2009. They also contribute to the strategic planning of the MENA-OCDE Governance Programme and the renewal of its programme of work.
