In recent years Mauritania has successfully reduced the proportion of the population living below the national poverty line, improved access to education and addressed gender inequalities in primary school enrollment. Involving youth–70% of the population– and women in development strategies is fundamental to sustaining and building upon these achievements. Improving access to information and educational opportunities ensures that youth and women are empowered to contribute to Mauritania’s attainment of several MDGs, and build a more prosperous future.
