Promoting employment policies and integration

PROMOTING EMPLOYMENT POLICIES AND INTEGRATION

It is a fact: countries which invest the most in employment see their living standards improve faster. This is according to the findings of a study on the last twenty years commissioned by the World Bank (4). Yet 201 million people around the world were still unemployed in 2014, a situation which affects over a third of the young population. A particularly alarming phenomenon is the increase in youth Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEETs), the number of which reached 260 million in 2015.

AFD supports developing countries in order to promote job creation policies and private sector participation. It promotes dialogue with all stakeholders in order to improve working conditions, increase knowledge of job markets and develop programs that meet the needs of territories. It establishes lifelong learning systems.
