The technical cooperation project, financially supported by the PAO Lukoil and implemented by the ILO, seeks to improve the effectiveness of youth employment policies and programmes in Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation (as well as six more countries: Armenia, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan) to establish a framework for regional cooperation and knowledge sharing on youth employment.
The project addresses disadvantaged young people, such as low-skilled youth, those who dropped out from school, those who face difficulties in entering the labour market due to the lack of work experience, and other groups of disadvantaged youth, with particular emphasis on youth at risk of social exclusion and those exposed to anti-social behaviours.
