Policy_Paper_on_Youth_employment

Long-term unemployment is worse than poverty as it leads to social exclusion and marginalisation, especially in urban areas, where a person’s social status is linked to his/her job or career. Idle youth may be threat to themselves and to the social environment they live in as witnessed in the on-going war. Youth employment will drive economic growth and reduce poverty and may also secure social and environmental sustainability and reduce the big chance of youth participation and joining conflict.
