Study on employment in small and medium-sized cities

Context & objectives:

Small and medium-sized cities in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia have unemployment rates higher than the national average of 11.5% in 2013. As a result of different "Saudization" strategies for youth employment and women (included in the 10th Plan), the Ministry of Employment is now seeking to stimulate Regional Development and in particular that of intermediate-sized cities.

The project strives to:

  • Evaluate the economic situation and employment in a sample of representative cities
  • Propose appropriate initiatives to overcome employment problems and suggest a governance model to guide the implementation of these corrective actions.

Main achievements & impacts
  • Analytical grid of cities from 100m to 500m inhabitants
  • Categorization and monograph of pilot cities
  • Surveys and surveys in selected cities
  • Comparative analysis with local and international model cities
  • Toolbox of initiatives and corrective actions
  • Public policy and action plan to be undertaken in representative cities
