Taqeem Initiative: What Works in Youth Employment
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.
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.
Taqeem disseminates findings and recommendations from impact research to policy makers and practitioners who are using the evidence to improve programming and policy decisions. The objective is to ensure gender and rural mainstreaming in youth employment strategies.
