Infographic: Promoting youth employment and empowerment of young women in Jordan: An assessment of active labour market policies

The Youth Employment Inventory Jordan provides comparative information about the design, characteristics and achievements of 84 youth employment interventions implemented between 2012 and 2016.

In 2016 under the IFAD-ILO Taqeem partnership, a country inventory of youth employment interventions in Jordan was carried out through extensive desk research and by structured interviews with implementing agencies in Jordan.

Subsequently, the report “Promoting youth employment and empowerment of young women in Jordan” was issued, which draws on an extensive analysis of data from the Youth Employment Inventory Jordan. The report identifies key barriers faced by young people in Jordan in their efforts to enter the labour market. It also compares the current landscape of active labour market policies for young people with global good practice and those barriers which are specific to Jordan.

The below info-graphic summarizes the main findings of the inventory and report by visualizing the key data points, intervention designs and target populations.
