The Rural Youth Mobility project. Methodology and results

This publication provides an overview of the methodology and best practices developed during the implementation of the Rural Youth Mobility Project (RYM) in Tunisia and Ethiopia, while decsribing the results acheived at country level.

The Project was launched in 2015 to address the drivers of rural out-migration of youth - such as poverty, food insecurity and unemployment - while at the same time harnessing the development potential of migratory movements.

With funding from the Italian Development Cooperation, RYM strives to shed lights on the drivers and patterns of rural migration and enhance governments’ capacity to better address migration issues in the context of rural development and vice versa. In migration-prone areas of Tunisia and Ethiopia, the Project has also provided unemployed youth with the necessary training and equipment to launch economic activities in rural areas - in a process that has been developed in close consultation with youth themselves.
