Partnerships

  •  

    Partnerships are at the core of ITC Youth and Trade Programme. ITC will catalyse partnerships with various public and private entities, at national and at international level, in order to ensure a maximum impact for young entrepreneurs.

    The purpose of those partnerships is to create a conducive and supportive ecosystem of committed organisations and individuals from the private and public sector.

    Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth

    ITC is a core member of the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth, a UN system-wide effort to support the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in the area of youth employment.

    Under the ILO lead, the Initiative was developed by several entities of the United Nations that are committed to increase the impact of youth employment policies and expand country-level action on decent jobs for young women and men. The specific pillars of the Initiative include:

    • Multi-stakeholder alliance: Engaging stakeholders and world leaders in high-level policy action on youth employment;
    • Action: Expanding and scaling up context-specific interventions at the national and regional levels for systematic and coherent policies and interventions on youth employment;
    • Knowledge platform: Pooling existing expertise and enhancing knowledge development and dissemination on what works for youth employment, including through the development of tools and capacity building; and
    • Resources: Leveraging resources from existing facilities and mobilizing additional resources.
