  • The Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth

    Today, over 40% of the world’s youth are either unemployed or have a job but live in poverty. Over 73 million young women and men worldwide are looking for a job and more than one-third of those working in developing economies lives on less than US$2 a day. The Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth is a unique collaboration and partnership platform to join efforts to tackle the youth employment challenge and assist Member States in targeting and delivering on a crucial goal of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
