The #WEWORLD INDEX 2019 Report, edited by WeWorld GVC Onlus, was presented today at the FARNESINA.

The annual report measures the rate of inclusion in the world. This fifth edition has focused on an innovative concept of inclusion, which takes into account both economic and social factors. The final ranking comes from an assessment of progress made in each country, looking at the living conditions of people who are at the highest risk of exclusion, by analyzing 17 areas (housing, environment, work, health, etc.) and 34 indicators, selected from the most significant parameters that are analyzed by international data banks (WHO, UNICEF, World Bank, etc.).

In his opening speech, Giorgio Marrapodi, Director General of Development Cooperation at the Farnesina, stressed that "education is the key to foster resilience, promote social cohesion and strengthen the antibodies that are required to prevent the recurrence of conflicts. In 2018, Italian Cooperation dedicated about 14% (about 20 million Euros) of available resources to humanitarian aid and education in emergency situations, in line with the minimum threshold that was recommended in the conclusions of the EU Council on "Education in Emergencies". Some of the initiatives that are supported by Italy were mentioned, such as the projects for the distribution of school meals to counter malnutrition and reduce drop-outs through the World Food Programme (WFP) and UNICEF's "No Lost Generation" strategy to guarantee the right to education.

Finally, Director Marrapodi recalled the fundamental action of Italian Civil Society Organizations, that "provide our country with a comparative advantage due to the professionalism and skills they have developed over the years. Their presence - he said - is widespread in the various humanitarian crises and I am convinced that their added value lies in the expertise and skills - that are typically Italian - in building relationships with local authorities, communities and CSOs, as well as the ability to foster dialogue between large international CSOs and local CSOs.
