This blog is part of a research project on the opportunities for decent work for youth in Africa’s Waste Recycling Sector, in collaboration with the Challenge Fund for Youth Employment (CFYE). Waste management in Africa is a major challenge for sustainable and inclusive development. Due to poor management, 90% of the waste generated in Africa is disposed of in landfills and uncontrolled dumpsites with severe consequences for the environment and people working in the waste management sector.
We are happy to announce the continuation of our research partnership with the Challenge Fund for Youth Employment (CFYE), focusing on decent youth employment in the context of the Green Economy transition in Africa. Building on the insights from last year’s research report, this project will further explore the potential for green jobs creation by looking at the waste recycling sector in Africa, continuing our research into Green Jobs as a possible solution for Africa’s increasing youth population.
With this video, we present an overview of the main findings and policy recommendations from our research collaboration Boosting Decent Employment for Africa's Youth, drawing out best practices for a more just, sustainable and inclusive approach to decent jobs for young people.
