The ‘Decent Jobs for Egypt’s Young People (DJEP) Phase II – “Together to Develop the Youth in Damietta” project aims at supporting the creation of decent employment opportunities for young men and women in the Governorate of Damietta. Gender considerations and increased women’s participation into the labour market will be a focus of the project in addition to the promotion of green jobs.  The inclusion of people with disabilities will be a cross-cutting area of intervention across the project. The 60 months project builds on the successes and learnings of the first Public Private Partnership project “Decent Jobs for Egypt’s Young People (DJEP): Tackling the Challenge Together in Damietta” implemented by ILO with the support of Methanex from April 2019 to September 2023. Through a mix of activities including business skills development interventions as well as facilitating job matching the first intervention managed to generate 725 jobs created. This second intervention will build on these results as well as on the strong partnerships established with the local entities with an overall objective to reach 1000 employment opportunities.
