Mobilizing Young People’s Economic Potential for Rapid Economic Take-Off in Cameroon

Cameroon's Youth Demographic Advantage

With too many young people who all enter the job market at the same time, poor labor market-skills development and orientation in schools, the Cameroonian local economy is struggling with a labor planning strategy which does not quickly absorb its rich youth demographic dividend into productive and gainful employment.

To make the Cameroonian local economy stronger, resilient and responsive to resource generation, capital management and employment creation, the Municipal Councils Business Management and Public Service Governance Fellowships [BMF] supports local government councils in their effort to improve the labor market skills of their youth population; translating national growth policies and youth empowerment into value creation and growth prospects for ordinary citizens locally.
