At the G20 Hamburg Summit, heads of the world’s leading economies presented an initiative to tackle youth unemployment in developing countries.

Leaders of the world’s 20 major economies met in Hamburg, Germany, on 7-8 July to discuss pressing global issues, including rural youth unemployment. While the meeting centred on trade policy issues, climate was also addressed, with heads of state and government “acknowledging” the USA’s withdrawal from the Paris Agreement, although the implementation of Agenda 2030 received only little attention. The topic of rural youth unemployment was referred to in an Annex to the G20 Leaders Declaration. The G20 are reckoning with 440 million young people entering the labour market by 2030 in Africa alone. Their new “G20 Initiative for Rural Youth Employment” builds on the G20 Food Security and Nutrition Framework of 2014 and the G20 Action Plan on Food Security and Sustainable Food Systems of 2015.

G20 Africa Partnership
The initiative forms a key element of the G20 Africa Partnership, aimed at renewing efforts for sustainable economic development in Africa.
