Key Considerations in Youth Workforce Development

Against the backdrop of a global youth unemployment crisis and within a broader set of questions and approaches to youth economic inclusion, this issues paper seeks to illuminate complex dynamics and key considerations in preparing the world’s young workers, and in doing so provide a framework to inform and influence further investigation and assessment of promising practice and policy. The analysis focuses on equipping and engaging the labor supply to meet the demands of the market while recognizing that questions around boosting demand and job creation, and broader labor market policies such as mobility, subsidies, and minimum wages also warrant further attention.
