Job Creation

Creation of the Job Creation flagship programme against a background of increasing youth unemployment in priority countries for Monaco’s international development policy. In West Africa, poor literacy among young people (aged 15–24), particularly girls, restricts access to employment. In addition, certain groups face obstacles to being hired (women, rural young people, refugees, people with disabilities, etc.).

  • Support for professional training: support for public policies pursued by the authorities (Burkina Faso), support for learning centres (Morocco, Madagascar, Mali), allocation of professional training grants, support for Alliances Françaises in isolated areas (learning French, ICT, coding, etc.)
  • Promoting women’s and youth entrepreneurship: access to micro loans, support for women’s groups, financial education. Targeted support to create jobs for refugees is provided (Morocco, Tunisia)
  • Support for the launch and development of micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (training, investment funds, promotion of the Social and Solidarity Economy), in conjunction with the "Société d’Aide au Développement de Monaco" (SADEV)
  • Support for rural employment: training for young people (Mali, Mauritania), structuring of agricultural sectors (dairy sector in Senegal and Niger)
  • Training for professions: occupational therapy in Morocco, humanitarian aid management in West Africa, first aid in Burkina Faso, urban planning in the Mediterranean, humanitarian research in French, etc.

In parallel, Monaco’s international development policy is taking action to combat child labour.
