Youth Employment Interventions in Ghana
This African Policy Dialogue on Youth Employment Intervention in Ghana, carried out by INCLUDE, NABC, GNBCC and the University of Ghana Legon seeks to generate research evidence on what works or does not work in youth employment interventions and contribute to the design of youth intervention in Ghana.
We aim to achieve the objective by:
- Conducting and disseminating research.
- Actively engaging with policy makers, private sector actors, and youth and civil society groups.
- Producing comprehensive policy documents for the Government of Ghana.
The Way Forward for Sustainable Youth Employment in Ghana Forum
On September 9, 2020, the African Policy Dialogue Stakeholder engagement meeting was organized as part of the ‘Youth employment interventions in Ghana‘ dialogue. The meeting was held through a collaboration between the Department of Economics at the University of Ghana, the NABC, and the Ghana Netherlands Business & Culture Council (GNBCC). The forum brought together over 90 key stakeholders from academia, political parties, industry, policy makers among others, to discuss findings of an evidence-based research conducted to ascertain the outlook of youth unemployment in the country and also to offer sustainable solutions. You can read the stakeholder engagement meeting report here summarizing the meeting, including the presentations held and roundtable discussions on knowledge sharing and governance, private sector support and the role and recommendations for political parties in Ghana.
