Shaping a new strategy for the youth sector

By building a theory of change for the youth sector (vision, mission, inputs and resources, thematic priorities, factors, conditions and context), the drafting group will encompass the various parameters of the future strategy in this theory, while ensuring the contents of the resulting strategy can be meaningfully evaluated. Possible key elements of the strategy 2030 will be defined, for example contents, context overview, key background reference documents, bibliography, etc. and the ensuing steps in the development process defined.

World Bank Approves New Country Partnership Framework for Liberia’s Growth, Development

The World Bank Group (WBG) Board of Executive Directors on Tuesday, November 27, approved a six-year Country Partnership Framework (CPF) to support Liberia’s effort to achieve sustainable, resilient pro-poor economic growth and development. The CPF responds to the country’s strategic priorities in its Pro-Poor Agenda for Prosperity and Development strategy and incorporates views from a wide range of stakeholders following consultations held across the country.

According to a World Bank release in Monrovia, Liberia has made significant achievements after the restoration of peace and stability 15 years ago.’The medium-term growth prospects remain positive, although substantial downside risks remain. GDP growth is projected to recover at an annual average rate of 3.8% over the period 2018-2020. The recovery is expected to be largely driven by agriculture, manufacturing and services sectors, as the economy begins to reap the benefits of improved access to roads and cheaper sources of electricity. Inflation is projected to decline from 11.5% in 2018 to 9.5% by 2020. Additionally, in line with projected improvements in the economy, poverty is expected to fall from 50.5% in 2018 to 48.6% in 2020.

The Global Water Summit 2019, London: Disruptive Designs For The Global Water Sector

Global Water Intelligence (GWI) has announced the theme for the 13th Global Water Summit, taking place in London, 8 -10 April 2019. Returning to the UK for the first time in 10 years, the conference will focus on ‘Disruptive Designs’, addressing the ways the water sector can overcome previously intractable obstacles and accelerate opportunities across the water market.

Disruption is being felt everywhere. From global trading rules and internal political systems to old alliances and business models, the established order is being challenged and re-evaluated. In the global water sector however, the story is a refreshing one of collaboration and consolidation. The Global Water Summit 2019 will address these trends as part of the ‘Disruptive Designs’ theme, with an Opening Plenary Keynote given by Gillian Tett, US Managing Editor, the Financial Times.

Demand for both physicians and nurse practitioners driving up compensation, study finds

There’s a big demand for both physicians and nurse practitioners (NPs), and it’s driving up compensation, according to a new study.

The demand for physicians in the U.S. surged in 2018, with a 7% increase in job openings, according to a report from Doximity, the medical social network. That outpaced the 5% growth Doximity observed in 2017.

The study, based on an analysis of approximately 8,000 physician jobs posted on the network in 2017 and 2018, found that job growth correlated with strong regional increases in compensation as well.

Middle East youth and tech: What’s happened since the Arab Spring?

Why is there so much interest in the youth demographic? Put simply, the Middle East’s youth population bulge makes it too big to ignore.

“In 2015, close to one person out of five in the region was aged between 15 and 24 years,” the World Economic Forum recently noted, following on an earlier observation that “one-third of the population is below the age of 15 years”.
