On March 6-8, 2014, Silatech co-sponsored the “Evidence Symposium: Increasing Youth Productivity in the Middle East and North Africa,” which was hosted by Georgetown University – Doha. Other sponsors included the International Labor Organization, the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab and the Arab Urban Development Institute. The Symposium brought together 93 practitioners, academics and policy makers to present and discuss the evidence base for "what works" in terms of programs and policies aimed at improving employment outcomes for young people.

This final report provides an overview of the issues raised during the Symposium, with the aims of catalyzing more partnership among donors, policy makers and researchers with the goal of advancing our knowledge of what works, and what does not, in promoting employment and entrepreneurship for young people in the Arab world.
