ILO call for action to address youth unemploymentListen /
The International Labour Organization has put out a call to action to create decent jobs for youths.
ILO Director-General Juan Somavia says the policy package is not a one size fits all solution, but instead, a comprehensive multi-pronged strategy that concentrates on five areas.
They include macroeconomic policies, employability, labor market policies and social protection, youth entrepreneurship and respect for rights at work.
"The call for action particularly highlights the need for a balanced approach between supply policy measures and demand policy measures, recognizing the need of integrating the role of macroeconomic policies that promote a return to growth, that make full employment a central target, that encourage productive investments and access to finance as indispensible measures for tackling the youth employment crisis."
