The Iraqi Youth Initiative Presentation explores the intricacies of the Iraqi Youth Initiative, a $12 million job creation program that is operating in 15 of Iraq’s 18 provinces. The program design and implementation process that took place in a context where basic statistics, particularly on women, were few and unreliable is discussed. This was presented under the Adolescent Girls and Young Women Track at the 2012 Global Youth Economic Opportunities Conference.
