The Arab Knowledge Project was launched in 2007 within the framework of the strategic partnership between the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation. It brings together several initiatives based on a shared vision of knowledge centralization within the efforts exerted to achieve sustainable development for the Arab region.
The Knowledge Project aims to enhance knowledge-based societies and policies to achieve sustainability.
Contributions and Results
The project aims to enhance effective dialogue and promote awareness of the importance of knowledge and knowledgebased policies for sustainable development. To meet the project objectives, three Arab knowledge reports have been issued, followed by the issuance of the Arab Knowledge Index for two years and the Arab Reading Index and most recently the Global Knowledge Index, the only index that measures knowledge globally.
