The KOICA-funded Green Jobs for Rural Youth Employment project (GJ4RYE) relies on and implement an approach aiming at fostering green jobs for rural youth through green entrepreneurship and waged employment (via the setup of Public Employment Programmes (PEP)).

Through this approach and project, the FAO provides youth with soft and transferrable skills (e.g., problem identification and solving skills, business literacy, communication and teamwork skills) as well as sector-specific skills across the green agriculture and economy sectors. The youth also receive a two-year support through seed money for their green business start-ups or waged employment opportunities in green PEPs.
