Développement du secteur privé et services financiers

Le secteur privé joue un rôle-clé dans les pays en développement. © DDC/Suzanne Linder

Le chômage et le sous-emploi figurent parmi les problèmes de développement les plus graves que connaissent les pays partenaires de la DDC. Or, un meilleur accès à un emploi productif et convenablement rémunéré s’avère indispensable si l’on veut durablement réduire la pauvreté mondiale et réaliser les objectifs de développement durable des Nations Unies.

Développement du secteur privé

En tant que moteur de la croissance économique, le secteur privé joue un rôle clé en faveur du développement durable.

L'emploi des jeunes

La formation professionnelle des jeunes doit être adaptée au marché de l’emploi.

Développement du secteur financier

Faciliter l’accès des ménages pauvres, des paysans et des PME aux services financiers peut renforcer leur participation à la vie économique et réduire ainsi leur vulnérabilité face aux crises.
