The Arab Knowledge Report 2009

Zunia has posted a link to the new Arab Knowledge Report:

The Arab Knowledge Report 2009: Towards productive intercommunication for knowledge, emphasises two central and mutually dependent premises. The first is the connection between knowledge, development and freedom. The second is the close relationship between the demands of development and the building of the knowledge society.The Report addresses the factors that impede the establishment of a knowledge society in the Arab world and assesses the state of education, information and communication technologies, research and innovation in the region.

According to University World News, this is the first publication from a partnership between the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation and the United Nations Development Program.
Knowledge is a tool and a goal that influences all levels of society equally and involves all fields. It is a primary avenue for renaissance and human development in the region.
Adel Abdellatif, Chief of the Regional Programme Division at UNDP’s Regional Bureau for Arab States
