The recommendations called for coordinating efforts by the local authorities, donors, and civil society organizations to create job opportunities for youth and encouraging the private sector to invest in the field of training.

In the field of urban poverty reduction, the participants recommended the need for balance in development between the provinces to reduce migration to cities by promoting factors of rural stability and improving loans services, finance facilities, and benefits and encouraging self-investment culture and small enterprises.

The participants called for making a suitable mechanism to activate the national strategies on childhood and youth, education, and poverty reduction and evaluate the implementation of these strategies.
