Taqeem Impact reports

The ILO Taqeem "Impact Report" series disseminates research reports from Taqeem-supported impact evaluations. The studies use experimental and quasi-experimental approaches to estimate employment outcomes of active labour market policies and programmes. The goal is to improve the evidence base for "what works" in the effective design and implementation of integrated employment policy responses for youth and women's employment. Taqeem is a partnership with the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) as part of an IFAD-financed project titled "Strengthening gender monitoring and evaluation in rural employment in the Near East and North Africa".
