The MENA Region registered the highest rate of unemployment among youth: 28,2% compared to the global average of 13%. If we look deeper in Tunisia the rate reach 34,8% while in Morocco 28% and the Covid-19 pandemic has further widened this subject.
In this framework it’s born RISE – Resilience and Innovation through Strengthened Entrepreneurship – a 9 months project built on the existing EU-funded regional program, Med-up! and co-funded by UfM-Union for the Mediterrenean.
The intervention will address the root cause of the socio-economic stagnation in Tunisia and Morocco, targeting particularly vulnerable groups by contributing to increase economic resilience and employment opportunities for women and youth.
