Youth Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET) in East and Southern Africa - Summary of Key Findings and Policy Recommendations
The study covers Botswana, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, and Uganda. It finds that NEET rates in ESA are above 40 percent for youth in the 20-24 years age bracket, that young women in the region are disproportionally affected by NEET status regardless of their age group, and that this status is more likely to become a permanent state for young women than for young men.
As part of this program UN Women have an ongoing initiative examining the gender dimensions of HIV and AIDS as they intersect with the extractive industries. This initiative has involved desk research and consultations with industry representatives, and has resulted in a two-part publication. The first part of the publication is a contextual background report, which examines the links between gender, HIV and AIDS and the extractive industries in more depth, including full citations and methodological information about the research process.
