UNDP and its long-time partner, the Social Fund for Development (SFD), with the generous support of the Government of Japan, created urgently needed jobs for both women and men, and mostly youth aged 18 and 29 years old, in the poorest and most marginalized governorates of Egypt. These governorates are suffering from persistent high levels of unemployment and lack of basic social services. Committed to South-South Cooperation and building on the experience of other countries, we supported SFD in conducting comparative studies on Public Works models implemented in India, Malaysia and Brazil. Building on these experiences, the SFD started the implementation of its own Public Works Programme in 2012, tailored to Egypt’s needs and priorities. The comprehensive strategy of the programme was designed as a social protection scheme to address the specific employment challenges faced by youth and women in Egypt through creating short and medium-term employment. Given the gender dimension of unemployment in Egypt, labour-intensive public works projects, which traditionally generate jobs for men, were complemented by social services projects, which created jobs for women.
