Employment for youth in Egypt (EYE): Providing a reason to stay
Budget: US$5,089,703 (UNTFHS: $2,000,000; Pooled Funding: $3,089,703)
Implementing Agencies: ILO, UNIDO, UNDP
Accelerating progress on the SDGs, tackling the challenges of out-migration and the reintegration of returnees, and responding to the needs of an increasingly young population are national priorities in Egypt. To address these interconnected issues, this programme is advancing an inclusive strategy for sustainable development by strengthening youth engagement and social cohesion, promoting durable solutions for the returnees, and alleviating the root causes of out-migration and underdevelopment in the Nile Delta region. The programme complements and bolsters national and subnational efforts to advance the 2030 Agenda for all Egyptians, building on the lessons learned from the highly successful UNTFHS Hayat initiative in Minya (2013-2016).
