Arab Sustainability Leadership Group Discusses Youth Unemployment in the Arab World

Queen Rania moderated a panel on “Sustainable Development and Youth Employment in the Arab World” that included DSG Dean Tarik Yousef and other experts on this issue. Queen Rania summed up the problem: “With 60 per cent of our population under the age of 30 and one out of every four unemployed, we have to create five million jobs per year just to prevent a rise in unemployment…If we do not take any action by the year 2020, we could end up with 100 million young people unemployed in the Arab world”
