The Missing Middle: Positioning the South Sudanese Women and Youth for the 21st

Century World

The future of work is rapidly changing. Multiple reports suggest that there is a real need to adapt to the changing job landscape. In the context of South Sudan, the majority poor – women and youth seems to be ill-prepared for the future ahead. There is a clear gap between the job market and the skills that currently exist today. Worse so, the entrepreneurial culture if any, looks nascent. Businesses are generally not sustainable. Education of the day is not delivering and the investment landscape does not look good for this group. All these and other questions will be put forward to our panels for discussion.
