Education,Training and Capacity Building: Preparing the Next Generation of the Arab Work Force

Syria’s population is among the fastest growing in the world, and the need for a more  comprehensive education system has never been more pertinent. However, there are shortfalls between the number of women educated and those obtaining work or starting their own businesses, specifically in the services, tourism, technology and agricultural sectors. How can the education system assist in strengthening women’s opportunities in employment and self-employment and in accessing public life?

Supporting the Role of Women in Business and Women as Investors

The number of women in the Arab world who are currently being highly educated is not reflected in the statistics relating to businessownership and private sector employment of women. Yet it is proved throughout the Arab world that women-owned businesses employ more women. What are the factors contributing to these shortfalls and how can the private sector help to achieve a much-needed critical mass of women entering the fields of self-employment, entrepreneurship and investment?

The Role of Women in Rural Economies and Tourism

Documentary and Special Presentation on of Women’s Economic Empowerment and Poverty Alleviation Programme

HE Dr Diala Al Hajj Aref, Minister of Social Affairs & Labour, The Syrian Arab Republic

Syrian women in rural economies play a significant role in one of Syria’s most prominent industries – agriculture. In a recent report, the IFAD found that rural women do the majority of farm work yet have the most difficulty in accessing productive resources, training, capital and credit.

In this session, we explore the socio-cultural and gender barriers that are restricting women in rural economies from growing their businesses, and explore how these challenges can be overcome through partnership and best practice exchange with other Arab nations and the International Community as a whole.
