Promoting Youth Employment and Empowerment of Young Women in Jordan

The ILO Taqeem impact report entitled “Promoting Youth Employment and Empowerment of Young Women in Jordan” contributes to building consensus around the role of evidence-based active labour market policies (ALMPs) in promoting decent jobs for youth and empowerment of young women in Jordan. The report identifies key barriers faced by young people in Jordan in their efforts to enter the labour market. The report also compares the current landscape of ALMPs for young people with global good practices as well as barriers which are specific to Jordan. The report concludes with recommendations for policy-makers and programme implementers. Read it here.
