The Charter of Makkah is a pan-Islamic set of principles which support and promote anti-extremism, religious and cultural diversity, and calls for legislation against hate-motivated crimes and violence The document was declared at the end of a four-day conference organized by the Muslim World League in Makkah. It was approved by Islamic leaders of 139 countries and signed by around 1,300 prominent Muslim figures.
Our implementation framework will be based on the United Nations’ geoscheme, a system which divides the 249 countries and territories of the world into six regional and 22 subregional groups. It was devised by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD) based on the M49 coding classification. In some cases, it is modified by UN agencies for specific forms of policy—such as by the WHO, where Geographic groupings must also reflect global health models. Because the Charter of Makkah advocates for global cooperation, and urges involvements in sustainable development, the UNSD Geoscheme model will allow CoM goals to work concurrently with an existing initiative under UN and Global Development frameworks.
