After the Forum on Action for Sustainable Development and the Role of Youth in September 2018 focused on SDG 1: “Eliminating poverty in all its forms and all over the world”, ACSAC is organizing this year the Youth and Sustainable Development Forum that will address SDG 8: “Promote sustained, shared and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all”.
In Benin, youth employment suffers from enormous shortcomings because 30.4% of young people are underemployed visibly through the number of working hours and 63.2% unseen through precarious pay and indecent. Also, only 7.9% of young people benefit from paid employment in Benin and this percentage highlights the difficulties of absorbing the labor supply of young people by the labor market and the need for young people to take in charge.
The Sustainable Development Goals promote sustained economic growth, higher levels of productivity and technological innovation by 2030. However, four years have already passed and the question remains: What are the solutions for a strategic involvement of the Youth in full employment and economic growth in Benin?
It is to answer this question that is organized, within the framework of the fourth anniversary of the 2030 Agenda, the Youth and Sustainable Development Forum 2019.
