NRC – Youth Labor Market Assessment in Democratic Republic of Congo

In Democratic Republic of Congo, Key Aid Consulting undertook a youth labour market assessment aiming to inform the design of NRC’s youth project in three cities (Butembo, Kananga and Uvira). Data collection methods included a survey targeting employers and youth, FGDs with young people and KII with chambers of commerce, gouvernement representatives and entrepreneurs in the selected labour segments. This study will support the development of a sound technical skills development project for youth in DRC by highlighting the most promising sectors for youth in the three cities, the challenges they face to enter the labour market and employers’ needs and demand for skills.
