Kickstarting Youth Entrepreneurship: an answer to youth unemployment?

Youth unemployment is a global problem.  A recent OECD report reveals that the average rate of youth unemployment in OECD countries is 16% while the troubled economies of Greece and Spain are struggling with youth jobless rates above 50 per cent.  In Africa, an increasingly youthful population needs more opportunities to make a living, an issue deemed so relevant to the future development of the continent it was the primary focus of this year’s African Economic Outlook. In the Middle East and North Africa, dissatisfaction caused by high youth unemployment rates have been citedas one of the key underlying reasons for the Arab spring, illustrating the destabilising impact that youth unemployment can have.
