The thirteenth PEGNet Policy Brief titled “A tale of two MENAs" has been authored by Fatma Abelaziz and Clemens Breisinger from the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) in Egypt. The authors make the case that countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) regions are on two very different growth trajectories. According to the authors, economic growth in one set of MENA countries has stalled due to ongoing conflict while economic growth in the other set of MENA countries has been hindered by conflict in neigbouring countries and by oil price fluctuations. The authors recommend a number of policies that could lead to an economic breakthrough for the MENA countries that are not conflict afflicted.
