Youth Employment Policy Note (English)

This policy this note focusses on the Uganda’s youth employment challenges and on key actions that the Government of Uganda (GoU) can take to strengthen policies and programs for youth employment. This note summarizes why job prospects for youth in Uganda remain poor. It takes materials from stock take of youth employment initiatives in Uganda to examine the existing policy framework and overall status of youth employment programs in Uganda. This paper concludes with recommendations for adopting a comprehensive approach towards youth employment programs in Uganda by bringing together supply side and demand side interventions to simultaneously address interrelated objectives: promote job creation in labor intensive agri-business and agro-processing sectors; improve the quality of jobs young people already have (many in the informal sector); and help prepare young job seekers for jobs or move from low to higher quality job.
