According to latest estimates by the International Labour Organization (ILO), Somalia registers one of the highest unemployment rates in the world Cheap Richie Incognito Jersey
, with only 33 per cent of its youth employed.
Keating said one of the main reasons for youth unemployment is the mismatch between the skills that the youth can offer and those in demand by employers.
"This mismatch not only impacts the economy, but also hampers the transition to a more equitable, peaceful, prosperous and inclusive Somalia," the UN envoy said.
He said resources are very limited so the challenge is enormous, warning that failure to address it marginalizes young people Cheap Tyrod Taylor Jersey
, which make them more vulnerable to exploitation and radicalization.
With improved education, Keating said, relevant skills and competencies, and access to decent jobs, young people can help accelerate progress on the 2030 Agenda, fostering a prosperous Cheap LeSean McCoy Jersey
, sustainable and equitable environment for all.
The UN is currently investing 17.5 million U.S. dollars on programs that provide vocational and technical training to Somali youth, equipping them with the skills needed in sectors such as health, construction, mechanical engineering, agriculture and fisheries as well as entrepreneurship.
"These programs are a great investment and extremely valuable, but cannot alone meet the huge demand in Somalia Cheap Jim Kelly Jersey
," Keating said and urged Somalia and its partners to invest more in technical and vocational training of young people.
