About MEPI Library
The Maktabat MEPI Library is an online repository for training resources developed by civil society organizations and institutions that support civil society in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region through funding from the U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI). The Library also includes related resources created by organizations that work towards more pluralistic, participatory and prosperous societies throughout the region.
The broad range of topics included in the Library reflects the wealth of information and knowledge developed by MEPI projects. The site offers more than 800 training resources from 65 U.S. and local organizations, including training manuals, curricula and presentations, on topics ranging from entrepreneurship and nonprofit leadership to social media and civic engagement. Resources are organized by five technical areas – Civic Engagement, Governance and Human Rights, Economic Growth, Education and Media. In addition, material is categorized by Gender and Youth, when applicable.
As part of the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs (NEA) at the U.S. Department of State, MEPI supports organizations and individuals in their efforts to promote political, economic and social reform in the Middle East and North Africa. For more information about the Library, contact [email protected].
Aiming to advance stability and prosperity in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) supports governments and their citizens to achieve shared political, economic and stability objectives. In its fourteenth year, MEPI’s role in the MENA region shifted in response to new challenges and opportunities.
The MEPI program responds to needs and emerging opportunities for citizens and organizations that target three core objectives: Participatory Governance, Economic Reform, and Leadership. A cross-cutting theme is the focus on government-citizen relations: empowering partnerships between citizens, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, and government institutions to promote shared solutions for the people of MENA.
