The State of Arab Cities Report 2022

The overall objective of the report titled ‘The State of Arab Cities Report 2022: Financing Urban Infrastructure to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and the New Urban Agenda’ is to investigate the challenges encountering the urban economic and financial frameworks of Arab countries at the regional, national, and local levels, including how they have been impacted by COVID-19 and how to unleash their growth potential and stimulate their prosperity. The report contributes to post-COVID recovery and building back better, the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the promotion of the Sustainable Development Goals – with a focus on Goal 11 – and the application of the New Urban Agenda in the Arab region, by encouraging evidence-based urban policies to improve living conditions for city dwellers in Arab countries. In addition to this, it further expands on the Addis Ababa Action Plan of development financing as a foundation for policy guidance towards successful local financing in the different Arab sub-regions.
