CSEA participated in the Review of the National Employment Policy Plan

The Centre conducted a research study on ‘Rethinking Job Creation and Employment Generation Strategies in Nigeria’ in 2014 and organized a Policy Dialogue to present its findings. The event increased awareness on the main constraints to job creation and the need for a comprehensive approach to facilitate employment generation in Nigeria. Given the proactive nature of the policy recommendations emanating from the study, CSEA was invited to participate in the review of the National Employment Policy by the Federal Ministry of Labour and Productivity, in collaboration with the International Labour Organisation (ILO). The new policy document will serve as a blueprint to employment generation in Nigeria, and thus considerably contribute in efforts to eliminate poverty in Nigeria.
