The Middle East and North Africa is one of the most important regions in the world; rich in natural resources and has strategic position connecting with different parts of the world. However, the region is doomed with the spread of bad governance and conflict.
With one of the youngest populations in the world, the MENA region can unleash a strong growth potential by increasing economic opportunities for its youth and reducing youth unemployment, currently the highest in the world at 29%. Enrollment in tertiary education has seen impressive progress with over a 190% increase in the number of university students since 2000. The region’s young and well-educated population is a solid base for future and strong economic development.
The Youth talents, resources, perspectives and energy are still significantly untapped in the region. Youth and women are valuable assets in both developing and implementing development policies in the region.
As part of the Middle East Month, this webinar will address questions related to the youth and engagements aspects of countries of the region and potential scenarios that can transform the region. The Webinar hosts a panel of experts and bring a fresh perspective into the debate on perspective and aspiration of Youth in the MENA region.
