UN News - Job creation vital as number of youth in least developed nations expected to soar – UN

20 November 2013 – There should be a greater emphasis on job creation in the world’s 49 poorest nations, where the number of young people of working age is increasing by 16 million per year, says a new report released today by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).

The youth population – aged 15 to 24 years – in the least developed countries (LDCs) is expected to soar from 168 million in 2010 to 300 million by 2050, when one in four youths worldwide will live in an LDC.

The LDC Report 2013 recommends that the Governments of these countries intensify efforts to employ this vast resource – which is currently largely underemployed, or trapped in vulnerable, low-paid jobs – to improve prospects for economic progress.

It calls for a break with “business-as-usual” policies, and a shift towards policies aimed at spurring inclusive growth and the creation of more and better quality jobs.
