I just sent this blast:

Dear colleagues:

Please note that the dates of the Taqeem Forum: What Works in Women’s and Youth Employment in MENA, have now been changed to the 7 and 8 May 2018

We look forward to welcoming you in Cairo.



It is our pleasure to invite you to join ILO and partners at the What works in Youth and Women’s Employment in MENA Knowledge Sharing Forum taking place on 7 and 8 May at the GrEEK campus in Cairo, Egypt.

The event comes at a critical time to advance joint efforts to promote results measurement a crucial channel to ensure that experiences and lessons learned are documented, shared, and taken up in policy formulation. The ILOIFAD Taqeem Initiative and its Community of Practice (CoP) members have been piloting innovative approaches to results measurement of rural employment interventions. The CoP is now ready to expand  will your organization be a part of it?

  1. On day 1, 23 April, a knowledge sharing forum will take place sharing the latest evidence from evaluation and rigorous research on youth and women’s employment in MENA
  2. On day 2, 24 April, the new “Guide on Measurement of Decent Jobs for Youth” will be piloted with a select group of partners. 

We would be most grateful if you could confirm your participation by completing the online registration which can be found on the EVENT WEBPAGE, before 20 April 2018. Partners can register for either one of the days or participate in both days.

We look forward to your active participation and count on your critical inputs in the preparation of these important events.

In a context where national employment strategies and programme interventions by unity governments to boost job creation for youth in the MENA-region have not really led to major visible results even with huge funding from external international organisations and Monetory Fundings, the question on the issue what works in youth and women employment in the region is very central for experience sharing on the best practices and examples which can help us to find nuances and a path way in a very complex political, social and economic MENA context.
