[03/August/2010]

SANA'A, Aug.03 (Saba)- The First Annual Conference on issues of youth and children was concluded here on Tuesday, organized by the Child's Protection Initiative in Sana'a, the Arab Institute for Urban Development and the Child Protection Initiative in the Middle East and North Africa.

The participants in the two-day conference affirmed the need to build a database on the phenomenon of child labor and school dropping-out and carry out surveys and academic studies to be reliable in designing programs and interventions.

The participants recommended the local councils to implement interventions to reduce school dropping-out and improve school infrastructure and rehabilitate schools, so as to meet the needs of students including those with special needs.

In the conference held under the motto "Local authorities.. children, youth and better life opportunities", the attendants underlined the importance of creating a safe and attractive environment for creativity and enhancing citizenship and the real application of the laws relating to education.

The conference's recommendations also stressed the need to setting a strategy for the higher education and vocational training focusing on the quality of education and linking the education's outputs with the labor market's needs as well as supporting researches and studies to determine the size of unemployment.

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.

The partakers in the conference, from representatives of Arab child-friendly cities and local authorities in 13 provinces of the country, discussed a number of papers on the experiences of other countries and the local experience on the issues of youth and childhood.

The closing session of the conference was chaired by Minister of State for Parliamentary and Shura Council Affairs, Ahmed al-Kuhlani, during which a number of speeches were delivered by representatives of the provinces of Lahj, Abyan, Ibb, Hajjah, Hadramout and Sana'a.
