AMMAN — HRH Prince Hassan, chairman of the Higher Council for Science and Technology, on Sunday attended the launch of the results of the Integrated Context Analysis (ICA) conducted in Jordan. 

The ICA is a research tool implemented by the UN World Food Programme in a number of countries, and used in the Kingdom to identify the poorest areas, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported on Monday. 

Prince Hassan, during the ceremony, said that using the ICA in Jordan is a “qualitative leap”, highlighting the need for developing a common knowledge base that lets administrations share information, which activates good governance and leaves room to shift from a humanitarian to a development role, as well as spreading the culture of "drawing closer to reality".

To enhance human dignity and empowerment, the prince also drew attention to bolstering cooperation between regional and international institutions.

He also called for setting a new global humanitarian system to address the three challenges of man against man, man and nature, as well as man-made disasters.
