The Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports Development, the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) and the International Labour Organisation (ILO), have collaborated to begin implementing a plan for job creation.
The plan was initially created through a campaign managed by the Nigeria Youth SDGs Network, a coalition of youth-led civil society organisations, as part of the implementation of the Nigerian Youth Employment Action Plan (NIYEAP), a four-year detailed framework to address youth unemployment.
The Ministry initiated a review of the NIYEAP four-year-plan in 2018 in collaboration with the United Nations.
NIYEAP serves as the Federal Government’s commitment under the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth, launched by the UN in 2016.
The Action Plan is a fundamental framework to address youth employment and emphasises finding solutions with and for young people who are seeking decent and productive jobs.
The NIYEAP has been developed to complement and operate in the context of existing policies, frameworks, and strategies such as the Economic Recovery and Growth Plan, the National Youth Policy, the National Employment Policy, the United Nations Development Partnership Framework and the Call for Action.
