Nigerian Youth Employment Action Plan 2021-2024

The overarching goal of the Nigerian Youth Employment Action Plan (NIYEAP) for the period 2021 to 2024 is to contribute to the achievement of decent, productive and freely chosen employment for young people by complementing and reinforcing existing policy commitments and national development priorities and related efforts. The NIYEAP has four priority areas of intervention, i.e. Employability, Entrepreneurship, Employment, and Equality and rights, and proposes strategic lines of action focussing on key sectors that have the potential to create decent jobs for youth. The NIYEAP also serves as a commitment of the Government of Nigeria under the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth.
