The emirate has hosted key discussions with more than 600 senior officials and 60 key speakers from around the world, who have strongly asserted that this will be possible only when the region’s governments are more participatory, and make the youth equal partners in the decision-making process.

These crucial discussions were held at a two-day conference, ‘Investing in the Future’ (IIFMENA), organised by the leading Sharjah-based global humanitarian organisation, The Big Heart Foundation (TBHF) under the theme, ‘Youth – Crisis Challenges and Development Opportunities’. The conference witnessed participation of over 3,000 attendees, and heard from senior diplomats and youth rights advocates like Nobel Peace Prize winner, Nadia Murad, and Ahmed Aboul Gheit, Secretary-General of Arab League.

Through high-level panel sessions and youth parliaments, IIFMENA 2018 has highlighted the pressing need to protect and rebuild minority groups in MENA, explored ways to promote short- and long-term rehabilitation, and promote youth skills and opportunities.

Furthermore, IIFMENA emphasised the need to regain the youth’s confidence in the international community. The conference has taken the first step in the direction by crystallising its two-day discussions into the ‘Sharjah Declaration for Youth Empowerment’ – a nine-point action agenda to empower youth, which Sharjah has called on MENA member states and the international community, to collectively adopt and implement.

Working from the frontlines of the conference, its young delegates also put forth the ‘IIFMENA Youth Statement’ – a set of 15 recommendations, which chart a more inclusionary approach to development in the region by focusing on harnessing opportunities for the youth.

IIFMENA 2018 was held in partnership with UNHCR, UNDP, UNICEF, UN Women, NAMA Women Advancement Establishment (NAMA), and SOS Children’s Villages. It is organised once every two years to shed light on a pressing humanitarian issue in the MENA region.

Survey Says: Project Leaders Need More PMTQ18.3.2019 17:00:00 EETTiedote

Project Management Institute (PMI) today released its Pulse of the Profession® report which reveals that organizations wasted almost 12 percent of their investment in project spend last year due to poor performance—a number that’s barely budged over the past five years. As a solution, PMI is calling on project leaders worldwide to evaluate and bolster their Project Management Technology Quotient or PMTQ. PMI developed the tenets of PMTQ by drawing on insights from innovator companies that put a high priority on digital skills acquisition and knowledge coupled with a commitment to a strong project management culture. PMTQ adds a layer of project management to the concept of technology quotient (TQ), which is defined as a person’s ability to adapt, manage and integrate content advances in technology for a project or organization. "In jobs of the future, project teams will be more and more reliant on technology as either an enabler or sometimes as a team member," said Murat Bicak, Senior
