On Tuesday, the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia, the United Nations' regional arm that supports Arab countries in reaching crucial development goals, is welcoming a record number of participants at its headquarters in Beirut for its annual Arab Forum for Sustainable Development. Under the patronage of Lebanon's Prime Minister Saad Hariri, over 250 representatives from government, civil society, the private sector, international and regional organizations and youth will come together in a space dedicated to fostering a culture of knowledge exchange and a spirit of collaboration and dialogue.While there are many pressing issues to tackle especially given recent diplomatic escalations that fuel economic and social instability, AFSD 2018 opted to bring the links between natural resources and the common good as central issues to intergenerational justice to the forefront of the deliberations.
