The Mashreq sub-region that is covered by the Mashreq sub-regional grouping of AARINENA is constituted by 6 countries: Cyprus, Jordan, Iraq, Lebanon, Palestine and Syria. These countries roughly cover 0.7 million sq. km. and have a total population of 48 million. Average per capita GNP for the region is estimated at US$1700.

Mashreq sub-regional grouping was established to provide AARINENA, the Regional Organisation, with a sub-regional contact point, a liaison officer. More spefically, the liaison officer has the following functions: a) assist the sub-regional grouping in deciding on its modus operandi and the way it organises its work and how it relates to other political and technical groupings in the sub-region, b) serve as a contact point with the other AARINENA sub-regional groups, as well as with the CGIAR centres, donor agencies and relevant organizations, c) act as a clearinghouse for regional and sub-regional projects and follow-up of their implementation, and d) represent the sub-region in the Executive Committee of AARINENA.
