(Business in Cameroon) - Today July 19, 2019, the 5-day workshop organized to train public employment services executives in Francophone African youth employment programmes’ monitoring and evaluation will be concluded. This workshop was organized by Centre d’études et de recherche en économie et gestion, a think tank of University of Yaoundé 2 with the partnership of the Cameroonian minister of labor, the Canadian cooperation agency and the International Development Research Centre (CRDI). It started on July 15, 2019, in Yaoundé and gathered 40 executives of the public employment services from Cameroon, Chad, Congo, Senegal and Côte d’Ivoire, as well as four groups of instructors.
The aim of this training was to provide these executives with adequate tools for better monitoring of job intermediation and youth unemployment reduction activities by taking special components into account, the organizers explain.
According to experts of Centre d’études et de recherche en économie et gestion, about 30 years after the elaboration of active job policies, it is difficult to point out their advantages. This training workshop will reverse the trend by providing the participants with tools that will help assess the impacts of those policies.
