This is the first in a 4-part series titled, Webinars on Land-based Jobs for the Youth. These are topical webinars that address the practical challenges that young job-seekers face. However, each Webinar will air at the time most convenient for young people in each region to participate: Africa (November), Latin America and the Caribbean (February), and Asia (April) can participate. The Webinars will also draw primarily on examples from the respective region. The concluding global webinar is planned for 12 August 2021 in celebration of the International Youth Day.
