Workshop participants charge ECOWAS member states on youth employment


ECOWAS member states have been urged to establish a mechanism for monitoring and evaluating the efficacy of their national youth employment plans in responding to the youth employment challenges facing the region.

This was one of the recommendations of a four-day workshop jointly organised by the ECOWAS Commission and the International Labour Organisation (ILO) in Accra to build the capacities of experts from member states on the implementation of these plans.

Urging for effective supervision on plans, participants also urged member states to operationalise their plans where they exist and undertake a study on the phenomenon of jobless growth, as well as jointly monitor the development and impact of their national action plans on youth employment in the region.
