Stakeholders representing industry, policy and training institutions from across six YEM Partner countries participated at the YEM Regional Workshop on Work-Based Learning in Rabat.

As the youth represent a growing segment of the working-age population across the Southern Mediterranean region and the Arab states, addressing skills mismatches to promote employment opportunities for the youth remains a critical challenge.
