Providing youth the best opportunity to transition to a decent job calls for investing in
and training of the highest possible quality, providing youth with skills that match labour market
demands, giving them access to social protection and basic services regardless of their contract type, as well as levelling the playing field so that all aspiring youth can attain productive employment
regardless of their gender, income level or socio-economic background. Governments can work to build dynamic, sustainable, innovative and people-centred economies, promoting youth employment and women's
economic empowerment, in particular, and decent work for all. Local authorities and
communities can renew and plan their cities and human settlements so as to foster
cohesion and personal security
and to stimulate innovation and employment.
