There are still many challenges to overcome in promoting youth inclusion and employment in Niger. The current training offer is still too far removed from the real needs of the market, as the private sector is not involved in the selection of courses and professions, nor in the elaboration of curricula, nor in the management of training centres and facilities. Accordingly, at the end of their training, the young people are not sufficiently prepared for integration into the world of work.
The GWANI project therefore aims to find a response to these various challenges by better adapting vocational training provision to the needs of the labour market, increasing the involvement of the private agricultural and semi-industrial sector, and developing mechanisms for better coordination between public (ministries, regional councils, municipalities, specialised structures) and private actors (professional associations, umbrella organisations, etc.).
