Evaluating the performance of sustainable social development in Iraq From the reality of international indicators
The social dimension is one of the three main elements of sustainable development that the countries of the world seek to achieve with the aim of eliminating poverty and social inequality, promoting economic growth, protecting the environment from the risks of climate change, and unsustainable production and consumption patterns, as emphasized by the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which It was approved by the United Nations in September 2015 and called on the governments of all countries to adopt the Sustainable Development Goals (17) as a guiding framework when implementing their development programs and plans to achieve sustainable development.
The international development indicators issued by international organizations and institutes specialized in development issues are one of the most important tools and mechanisms for measuring progress or failure in achieving sustainable development in all its dimensions, including the social dimension that covers issues of security, peace, housing, health, education, combating poverty and hunger, reducing gender inequality and empowering women .
In assessing the performance of sustainable social development in Iraq after 2003, we will rely on a selection of international indicators issued by prestigious specialized international organizations, bodies and institutes. These indicators are (Human Development Index, Sustainable Development Index, Prosperity Index, Global Peace Index, Index, Fragile State Index, and Global Terrorism Index).
The research aims to identify the performance gap in the various aspects of sustainable development regionally and internationally. The descriptive and analytical approach will be used and the quantitative dimension will be used through which the gap will be measured by comparing the computational value of the indicator in Iraq with the mathematical value of the same indicator in the first country in the world and the first country. In the Arab world, this will help us in diagnosing the weaknesses, shortcomings, and challenges facing Iraq to rise from the low ranks in most international development indicators to higher ranks commensurate with its material and human capabilities, its cultural depth, and its glorious history.
