Problems and Policies

The training needs of young people in many parts of modern Africa are a reflection of the total situation concerning youth and employment in developing countries. Recent projections by the International Labour Organisation indicate that in world terms the labour force under twenty years of age can be expected to grow from 230 millions in 1970 to more than 245 millions in 1980. An expansion from 211 millions to 264-millions is predicted for the age - group twenty to twenty-four years , making a total increase in the labour force under twenty-five years of age of approximately 68 millions of which 64.5 millions will live in developing countries.
