Taqeem provides technical assistance and training to partners with the objective of creating a critical mass of evaluation expertise in the MENA region.
Taqeem supports and conducts research to build evidence for effective design and implementation of policies and programmes targeting young people and women in rural areas.

IMPACT REPORT: Empowering Young Women through Business and Vocational Training: Evidence from a Field Intervention in Rural Egypt
01 September 2017
The ILO Taqeem “Impact Report” series disseminates research reports from Taqeem-supported impact evaluations. The studies use experimental and quasi-experimental approaches to estimate employment outcomes of active labour market policies and programmes. The goal is to improve the evidence base for “what works” in the effective design and implementation of integrated employment policy responses for youth and women’s employment. Taqeem is a partnership with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) as part of an IFAD-financed project titled “Strengthening gender monitoring and evaluation in rural employment in the Near East and North Africa”.
