Knowledge Sharing Platform

  1. The ILO Taqeem online portal provides members of the Taqeem community of practice with an interactive space for sharing, information and discussion about evidence on "what works" to improve youth and women's rural employment.

Taqeem Initiative: What Works in Youth Employment

Taqeem (meaning "evaluation" in Arabic) 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.”

Through rigorous impact research, this capacity development and learning grant project aims to understand “what works” in the promotion of gender mainstreaming, with the ultimate goal of reaching gender equality in rural employment outcomes across the region.
