Solutions4Work: Partnerships for Jobs and Youth Employment
May 7-8, 2014Istanbul, Turkey

Members from academia, business leaders and government ministers gathered together to discuss solutions for youth employment and forge additional public-private partnerships that can help expand markets and increase job growth.

While many initiatives on youth employment have been undertaken over the past few years, there is still limited knowledge about the best way to design, implement and coordinate these interventions, and how to link them to broader reforms that promote private investment and business creation and/or expansion. At the same time, the limited knowledge that we do have does not take into account the significant heterogeneity of constraints across settings and different youth populations, and few programs are designed to take into account these differences in context and needs.

More than 170 participants from academia, business leaders and government ministers gathered together to discuss solutions for youth employment and forge additional public-private partnerships that can help expand markets and increase job growth. The forum provided an opportunity to link, learn and leverage knowledge from key stakeholders.
