ECA, NKC African Economics to Present Joint Report on Best Practices in Job Creation in Africa

28 June, 2021

Rabat, 28 June 2021 (ECA) - The Economic Commission for Africa and NKC African Economics (an Oxford Economics company) will present on Wednesday 30 June their joint report on “Best Practices in Job Creation, lessons from Africa.”

The COVID-19 crisis is threatening to leave a lasting negative impact on Africa’s economy and employment opportunities, especially among the region’s bulging youth population.

As Africa initiates its economic recovery, this report aims to inform policy makers seeking to accelerate job creation about successful areas of intervention and key lessons through an investigation of 34 employment initiatives. Fifteen African countries were covered as part of this study (Algeria, Angola, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania and Tunisia).

One of the five regional commissions of the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the Economic Commission for Africa supports Africa’s economic and social development, fosters regional integration and promotes international cooperation in support to regional development through research and technical support to governments.

A leading provider of independent economic and political research on Africa, NKC African Economics specializes in the publication of reports addressing the information needs of professional investors and senior business decision makers engaged in Africa’s expansion.
