In the current post-Covid-19 context and global economic crisis, young people, particularly in Africa, are facing increasing difficulties in training and access to employment. To address this urgent need, the ARPEJ initiative was launched in 2019 by the Agence française de développement and the International Labour Organization (ILO). It aims to support and strengthen governments in the monitoring and evaluation of youth employment and training policies and to fuel discussions between the various stakeholders, namely workers' and employers' unions, youths, public institutions and the international community. In Congo, this work was complemented by a representative employment survey for young people aged 15 to 35 with the aim to inform about the transition to the labour market of Congolese youth and to update the employment data that dated from 2015.
