About the event
Africa’s informal economy provides youth both opportunities, as they can find livelihoods with low-barriers to entry, and challenges, as they tend to find little more than low-wage, temporary work. If the informal economy is to meaningfully contribute to SDG 8, we must better understand the fundamental system levers and how they can be moved to provide a better solution for youth employment and advancement up the enterprise ladder.
