Entrepreneurship is taking his firsts steps in Cape Verde. We can hear about it everywhere, the government talks about it, NGO's talks about it and in general everyone says that one of the solutions to reduce unemployment and development the economy is entrepreneurship... but in reality, it has been use/pronounce without any strategy, long term vision so the Young Association of Entrepreneurs of Cape Verde decide to prepare a meeting with all the major players that acts in this area: Government, University, NGO's, Banks, Private Associations, Technical Schools, etc. First, we did a status point of entrepreneurship in Cape Verde, after we propose a different approach to develop private sector and for two hours we brainstorm about how to develop a entrepreneurship culture and therefore develop the private sector. The participation was huge with all institutions contributing with ideas, new partnerships were born and with the compromise of the Secretary State of Economy we will act in a more integrated way to develop entrepreneurship.
I really think that this was a very good exercise and everyone can implemented in their own country.

On 9-10 December 2010, the Youth Employment Network (YEN) will host its third annual Evaluation Clinic in Beirut, Lebanon. The Clinic will be organized as a side event immediately following the Arab Urban Development Institute Child Protection Initiative (AUDI CPI) conference “Children &Youth in the MENA Region: Towards Unleashing their Potentials” from 6-8 December. The Clinic will provide a venue for evaluation specialists to collaborate with youth employment project teams for the development of impact evaluation plans. The 2-day event will include a series of interactive consultation sessions, lectures from renowned evaluation experts and the launch of a series of cutting edge impact evaluations with large potential to build the evidence base for effective youth employment project design and delivery.

 

Learning will be facilitated through the application of evaluation principles to youth entrepreneurship projects in the process of designing impact evaluations: so called “live case studies”. The live case studies that have been selected include:

 

  1. Silatech and Al Amal’s Microfinance Bank – Yemen
  2. International Youth Foundation’s YOUTH:WORK project - Jordan
  3. Education for Employment Foundation’s SME project – Egypt
  4. INJAZ project - Lebanon

The theme for this year’s Clinic is “Youth Entrepreneurship”. Recently, entrepreneurship programmes have been receiving increasing attention from governments, donors and multilateral agencies as an alternative job creation strategy. Given the limited absorptive capacities of existing formal labour markets in the developing world, promotion of youth entrepreneurship and self-employment is one of the few feasible options to create employment opportunities both in the informal and formal economy. Nevertheless, the evidence to support positive impact of entrepreneurship schemes is extremely weak. The Clinic seeks to assist youth entrepreneurship projects implement successful impact evaluations and disseminate the findings that come out.
