First edition of the UfM Progress Report on Regional Integration, commissioned by the UfM, and prepared by the OECD, was presented in an online event along with policy recommendations and an insight on best practice in regional integration from around the world.

Two important challenges to regional integration are highlighted: the inadequate infrastructure for transport and energy connectivity, and the lack of common vision on human mobility as a driver of innovation and growth in the region. The MENA region will require investment of over 7% of its annual regional GDP in maintenance and creation of infrastructure. There are several sub-regional initiatives to interconnect electricity networks and allow for electricity trade. This is crucial since, concentrated solar power plants could generate 100 times the combined electricity consumption of MENA and Europe.

Momento, helped UFM providing a full webapp for all their attendees and speakers, having a sucessful event that lasted for almost four hours.
