Youth Employment in Developing Countries

Janneke Pieters

Working Papers from eSocialSciences

Abstract: This report tries to address youth employment challenges, and suggests measures that countries will need an integrated approach involving different levels of government and linking with overall development and employment policy that reaches beyond the labour market and education sectors. The report discusses steps needed by governments to complement any short-term and youth-specific measures with longer term policies to stimulate labour-intensive growth. In a low-growth or capital intensive growth environment, programs aimed at improving youth employability risk having no or only limited impact.
