Résumé
Following the revolution, Egypt’s already high youth unemployment rate has exacerbated from 19 per cent in 2010 to 28.9 per cent in 2012. Egypt’s ‘youth bulge’ whereby one quarter of the country’s population is aged between 18 and 29 has become a major predicament rather than a unique opportunity for development, as job growth has failed to keep up with increases in the working-age population. In addition, the jobs that are being created are very poor in quality, and are mainly concentrated in Egypt’s informal economy which fails to provide decent work conditions. This lack of decent work is preventing the next generation of Egyptians from gaining the skills, experience and income necessary for the further economic, social and political development of their country. Drawing on lessons learned from numerous youth employment initiatives in Egypt and in other countries, the following project document proposes an ambitious multi-dimensional and integrated approach to stimulating youth employment over a three year period in two Egyptian Governorates : Qalyoubia and Menoufia. The project aims at increasing decent employment opportunities for young men and women, especially vulnerable groups.
