The conference will bridge theory with practical applications by focusing on good practices that can help connect youth to jobs, start a new business, or manage periods of unemployment.
The conference will target policy makers, technical experts from different MENA governments and agencies, international organisations, private sector, youth and civil society. The conference will be interactive and will encourage active participation and discussion among participants.
It is expected that the conference will lead to the identification of concrete policy and operational recommendations to tackle some of the region’s most pressing job challenges for youth.
