Measuring Results in Youth: Experience from training interventions
January 20th, 2009, Amman, Jordan
In response to the urgent need of finding employment for a large number of youth, developing countries as well as public and private donors are investing considerable amounts of resources in youth employment programs. Nevertheless, too little is known about what works. Only rigorous monitoring and evaluation will provide the knowledge base required by policy makers and development practitioners to allow them to assess the effectiveness of programs and to make the right choices in program design and delivery.On January 20th, 2009, YEN convened a workshop entitled “Measuring Results in Youth Employment: Experience from training interventions” in Amman, Jordan. The workshop brought together youth employment practitioners from the MENA region with specialists from YEN’s core agency partners (ILO, World Bank and UN).
