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.

Countries such as China, Sri Lanka, Lao PDR, Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam, and PNG have introduced, or are in the process of introducing, entrepreneurship education at various educational levels such as secondary, post-secondary, vocational and technical schools and higher education. Entrepreneurship or moreover entrepreneurship education within all education institutions is a high level priority in the new Cabinet of Republic of Indonesia as reflected in the Medium Term Development Plan, in a Presidential programme, and an inter-ministerial MoU.

The ILO is organising a regional workshop on Entrepreneurship Education and the Know About Business programme (KAB) to take place in Jakarta, Indonesia, from September 21st to the 23rd, 2010. The meeting is sponsored by two technical cooperation projects – the Swiss funded “Creating Youth Employment Through Improved Youth Entrepreneurship” and the Dutch funded “Education and Skills Training or EAST”.

The meeting intends to gather around 65 key stakeholders working around or directly with entrepreneurship education in mostly Indonesia but also Lao PDR, China, Sri Lanka, Philippines, Vietnam, and PNG.
