Regional Studies

The Economic Development and Prospects (EDP) reports provide an update on recent events in the region and the world economy, discuss how these events impact the countries in the region, and discuss what policies could help address upcoming challenges.

Orientations in Development was launched by the World Bank's Middle East and North Africa Region in 2001 to share analysis of the multifaceted development issues facing the region and to offer practical and innovative solutions.  From managing scarce water resources to preserving cultural heritage to enacting policies that promote equitable growth and reduce poverty, the region confronts a broad range of challenges.  Each contribution in this series seeks to deepen the knowledge on these topics and enrich the policy debate among development practitioners both within the region and worldwide.
