On Tuesday 25th September researchers from RELIEF will hold the Expert Working Group workshop on a Lebanon Prosperity Index. The purpose of the workshop is to initiate discussion on the opportunities, challenges, and available methods for constructing a prosperity index for Lebanon. The workshop will explore recent research on Ras Beirut, including previous and future quantitative and qualitative research to develop the Prosperity Index in the Lebanese context.
Prosperity is a concept that goes beyond standard notions of quality of life and GDP to encompass key universal domains around health, healthy environments, power, identity and culture, opportunities and aspirations on an individual and collective basis.
