Now, we are Members of Partnership Forum in the Regional Partnership on Culture and Development (RPCD – USAID). The RPCD is a three-year program sponsored by USAID’s Office of Middle East Programs (OMEP). The program’s objective is to collect and disseminate information that will improve development efforts in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The program also aims to create a culture of information sharing among members of the development community in the MENA region, to better plan and implement development projects. RPCD disseminates regional research on development issues; shares best practices and lessons learned from international development programs, and provide live and virtual forums for regional knowledge sharing. Therefore, the RPCD Portal provides a hub for researchers, experts and USAID staff in the Middle East/North Africa region to gather and access the information they need most.
