    Youth not in employment, education or training in Asia and the Pacific: Trends and policy considerations

    07 November 2022

    This report, Youth not in employment, education or training in Asia and the Pacific: Trends and policy considerations, examines the pre-COVID-19 trends on youth NEET from 2010 to 2019 and the impact of the crisis. It concludes that far too many young people are not succeeding in their labour market transitions, young women particularly. As a region whose economic success hinges on maximizing employment outcomes, with production and services still largely labour intensive, promoting a smooth labour market transition for young people is critical.

    Why should we integrate income and employment support? A conceptual and empirical investigation

    18 July 2022

    This paper conceptualizes, for the first time, the implementation of policy approaches that integrate active labour market policies within income support schemes, focusing on low- and middle-income countries (LMIC). We develop a conceptual framework to understand how integrated policies can address labour market challenges, exploring the theoretical effects they exert on selected labour market and social dimensions. We compare this to the empirical literature, which does not always find that policies are effective. To reconcile this discrepancy, we investigate the design and implementation of integrated approaches across LMIC and identify factors which contribute to their effectiveness.
