Youth employment has grown in prominence on national and global development agendas. The youth employment challenge has its own dimensions and confronts countries worldwide regardless of their stage of socio-economic development. The underlying problems are the large number of young people entering the labour markets every year, the lack of employment opportunities in particular in poor economies and post-conflict countries, and the low quality of education and training without a proper link to the labour markets. This paper tries to outline the dimension of the problem, the reasons why to intervene, and the possibilities of improving youth employment.
