The Arab Knowledge Reports were launched in 2007 as the first initiative of the partnership between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Knowledge Foundation (MBRF). Based on a shared vision of promoting knowledge-led development towards achieving sustainable development, the Arab Knowledge Reports focused on the goal of establishing the knowledge society and economy in the Arab region, i.e. a society where knowledge is the ultimate tool and medium of effective integration between ICT, expertise, and governance capacities towards maximizing the gains and sustainability of human development.
Three reports were released:
- Arab Knowledge Report 2014: Youth and Localisation of Knowledge with a case study for the United Arab Emirates.
- Arab Knowledge Report 2010/2011: Preparing Future Generations for the Knowledge Society with case studies for each of United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Morocco, and Yemen.
- Arab Knowledge Report 2009: Towards Productive Intercommunication for Knowledge.
All reports are published in both Arabic and English and are available for free download.
