Project Description
The objective of the Youth Economic Inclusion Project for Tunisia is to improve economic opportunities for targeted disadvantaged youth in the selected Governorates of the Borrower. There are three components to the project, the first component being identifying and connecting target youth to jobs. This component aims to identify and provide tailored services to selected target youth to facilitate their transitions from unemployment and inactivity into wage or self-employment, or to help them move from low to higher quality jobs (including from informal to formal). This component includes two subcomponents: carrying out of program intake and profiling of target youth, and providing tailored services for connecting target youth to jobs. The second component is the supporting job creation. This component aims to help the private sector realize its potential in creating jobs by: (a) supporting the development of value chains that have a high potential of job creation, and (b) supporting selected target youth in the creation and development of their micro-projects. This component includes two subcomponents: supporting the development of value chains with high job creation potential, and supporting the creation of micro enterprises. Finally, the third component is the building effective and accountable program delivery. This component includes four subcomponents: developing a management information system and other information and communications technology solutions for data-sharing and accountability, creating capacity-building and communications with stakeholders, building results-orientation and service delivery accountability, and project implementation support.
