YEN Evaluation Clinic - Youth Entrepreneurship in the Middle EastWednesday, 01 December 2010 10:47
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:
- Silatech and Al Amal’s Microfinance Bank – Yemen
- International Youth Foundation’s YOUTH:WORK project - Jordan
- Education for Employment Foundation’s SME project – Egypt
- 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.
