It is clear that alongside strategies for creating jobs, there must also be strategies for creating new businesses that will, in turn, create employment. For those young people living in fragile states, seeking decent employment or entrepreneurial opportunities is an even greater challenge. More than 1.4 billion people are believed to be living in situations typified as “fragile”. This may be as a result of human-made or natural disasters, armed conflict, health related epidemics and outbreaks and extreme poverty, which have made it difficult if not impossible for a government to administer, provide and care for the people within its protection. An example of this is the lack of services and the often dis-jointed relationship between the core stakeholders who might contribute to creating entrepreneurial and employment opportunities, such as those developing policy or providing education, the transition from school to work, technical and vocational training and creating an enabling environment for start-up businesses to flourish and grow.
