First Arab States Regional South-South Development EXPO

ILO Solution Exchange Forum on Youth Employment

Inspired by the success of recent global South-South Development Expos, and regional knowledge sharing events, the UNDP Regional Bureau for Arab States, through its Regional Centre in Cairo and in close cooperation with the UN Office for South-South Cooperation, is holding the first Arab States Regional South-South Development Expo. The ILO is contributing with a Solution Exchange Forum on Youth Employment.

The ILO organized a Solution Forum on 19 February 2014 which encompassed a series of good practices and lessons learned on South-South and triangular cooperation (SSTC) on the theme of Youth Employment. It involved representatives of governments, and of workers’ and employers’ organisations, making it possible to address the issue from different perspectives and with an integrated approach. The Forum enabled participants to combine and better understand the relation between fundamental principles and rights at work, labour standards, employment creation, social protection mechanisms, and social dialogue in strategies tackling youth employment.
