Youth Employment and Sustainable Development in North Africa
Tuesday, October 3, 2017 to Wednesday, October 4, 2017
The overall objective of the meeting is to carry out a deeper analysis of youth employment and sustainable development as a follow up to the study on “Being Young in the Maghreb” published by the North Africa Office of the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (ECA-NA) in 2013. This shall be done by highlighting the major challenges that youth face in finding employment opportunities.
The analysis in this meeting will aim to illustrate what governments and other key actors are doing to ensure that employment policies achieve meaningful results for youth. Thus, the analysis will show case studies in North Africa that provide good practices for promoting youth employment and empowerment that is sustainable.
