In a statement issued on Saturday, the Council highlighted the current challenges facing the Arab world including high unemployment rates, especially among the youth, according to Al-Mamlaka. 

The statement said education did not align with the labor market's needs, lacked focus on reproductive rights, gender equality and was contributing to regional development disparities.

The Council emphasized that various factors such as population migration, unexpected rates of voluntary and forced migration, displacement, high fertility rates, accelerated demographic growth, and limited human capital, especially among the youth in some countries, can increase pressure on the region if not met with adequate policies and practices.
