The State of Urban Youth 2012/2013 , Youth in the Prosperity of Cities

UN Habitat

The increasing prominence of the youth bulge in most urban areas presents a unique opportunity, as they represent the most dynamic human resource available. Their numbers today are larger than at any point in human history. Yet this group suffers the most from urban unemployment and often feels that they lack equal access to opportunities. This is especially acute in developing countries, which have a relatively youthful population that must be mobilised to realise greater economic and social development goals.

Global Employment Trends 2014 - Risk of a Jobless Recovery?

ILO

The global labour market situation remains uneven and fragile. True, there are encouraging signs of economic recovery in those advanced economies most affected by the global financial crisis which erupted in 2008. Also, a number of emerging and developing countries − including recently in Sub-Saharan Africa − are enjoying relatively robust economic growth. The world economy may thus be growing somewhat faster than over the past three years.

Youth Employment and Migration: A Review of Practices from Joint Programmes of the United Nations

ILO

In 2007, the United Nations (UN) established the Millennium Development Goals Achievement Fund (MDG-F) to help attain the goals set by the Millennium Declaration. The Achievement Fund is a wide-ranging development cooperation mechanism with an overall budget of more than US$800 million. It was funded by a contribution from the Government of Spain to the UN system to implement programmes aimed at eradicating poverty and inequality.

Collaborating to Solve Youth Employment

ORGANIZER: 
Ashoka, MasterCard Foundation
DATE: 
Sep 17, 2014 (10:00am to 11:00am)

Sub-Saharan Africa faces a paradox that has global relevance and implications: it will be home to the largest youth population in the world by 2050 and although literacy rates (by 6%) and education enrollment rates (by 9%) have been on the rise, youth unemployment continues to hover above 60% across the region. How will African youth create or secure sustainable and meaningful livelihoods? And more specifically, who is responsible for youth employment in Africa?
