This presentation was prepared to initiate discussion at a special session of the 2014 AMEPPA Conference at the AUB in Beirut. The purpose of the session is to help define a programme of research and work for AMEPPA directed at putting forward suggestions for actions that address HOW MENA’s principal problems could be tackled.
It is suggested that special attention should be given to the first 18 slides. Hopefully, those attending the conference will be able to come to the session with their own ideas and contributions to the discussion. The remaining slides are mainly links to examples of useful comments that have been made about WHY so many problems are seen in the region. Of course readers might well be able to add many more examples to the list.
