Youth Inclusion project - Togo



Policy focus

Participating countries


News and events



In 2010, in Togo, young people (15-35 years) accounted for 36% of the total population, more than half of whom were women and living in rural areas. Many of them are exposed to risk factors that threaten their development and well-being. In the area of health, early pregnancy is a major concern in the country. With regard to education, the situation is characterized by a high rate of school drop-out. This phenomenon is particularly remarkable in rural areas and among young girls. Concerning access to employment, the share of young people aged 15-29 who are not in school, neither in training nor in employment, NEET, has increased. Similarly, the informal employment rate for young people remains high.

Faced with this situation, several policy measures, projects and programs have been set up with the aim of promoting youth employment, combating unemployment and encouraging the development of youth. Almost all of these programs are implemented or monitored by the ministerial department in charge of youth and youth employment.
