INCLUDE focuses on youth employment as one of the key challenges for Africa. By connecting various types of knowledge and stakeholders active in this field, INCLUDE has gathered a diverse set of insights into how to improve youth employment in African countries.
Part of this was the INCLUDE working conference on youth employment held in October 2015, which brought together more than 80 Dutch and African participants from policy, civil society and academia. Together with syntheses of studies conducted by Kluve et al., the UN Foundation and the International Labour Office, INCLUDE has formulated 10 focus areas for policy makers, which are set out below. The specific findings of these studies are presented in the supplementary policy brief ‘The evidence base on what works to promote youth employment’.
