Conclusions and recommendations

This report has shown that if Arab countries are to gain the one-off, time-limited development benefits of the age-structural transitions that are already underway, they must commit to undertaking a number of economic and social reforms. In many cases, the need for these reforms is already well-documented; however, the age-structural transitions give them new urgency, as without these reforms, the challenges of youth unemployment and alienation will worsen in the short term, and new problems including old-age poverty will emerge in the future.
