  • Youth employment: supply- and demand-side constraints and related policy options
  • Gender and women’s economic empowerment
  • Entrepreneurship and financial inclusion
  • Productive employment in rural farm and non-farm sectors - increasing labour productivity and reducing factor market imperfections
  • Sectoral composition and patterns of economic growth - implications for job-creation, employment and poverty reduction
