Imagined Futures: Gaps in Support for Rural Youth in Côte d’Ivoire

Published on 24 May 2021

Lack of employment opportunities for young people is a major concern across Africa, and involves many policy areas.

In Côte d’Ivoire, the situation is challenging because of political and economic crises that have beset the country in recent decades, impacting negatively on education and accentuating job insecurity, particularly among rural youth. Tackling the problem in rural areas requires a youth-centred approach that builds long-term, well-targeted and coordinated interventions based on young people’s lived experience.
