that the students they are teaching are adequately prepared for their future and have the skills necessary not just to perform in jobs but to apply for them. Career counselling should start from the beginning of the university cycle, before the students decide their final field of study so that they can base their decision on the market reality. 22. Developing pragmatic areas of cooperation through mapping, sharing of best practices, monitoring and evaluation of programmes made public: Coordinated consortia activities for youth: While coordinating bodies and consortia for NGOs in Somaliland and Puntland are active, in many cases, youth- specific efforts are not coordinated. In particular among vocational training programme, research found duplication of training and overlap in target groups. We recommend research specifically focused on existing programmes and players to map out the best role for each organisation and optimise overall efforts. Build on best practices and learn from successful programmes: such as the cooperation project between ILO and SONYO which trained university graduates in entrepreneurship skills and provided minimal start-up grants, but was highly successful in creating sustainable 23. Exploring innovative ways of raising awareness: since social media plays such an integral role in gathering information of the countries of destination and often encourages Somaliland’s and Puntland’s youth to migrate, new ways of reaching youth through social media campaigns should be explored. This has been highlighted as a key gap to be explored in other studies assessing the impact of information campaigns on migration out of Somalia, Somaliland and Puntland 39 . Overly positive and often staged pictures of youth who made it to Europe or the Arabian Peninsula could thus be balanced by images and testimonies portraying the “real journey” and “real life” abroad. 24. Specific to IOM’s programmes in Somaliland and Puntland’s urban settings: Rolling out the IOM Internship Programme in Puntland : the Internship programme is widely known in Somaliland and has proven successful in being the entry point for youth towards employment. A strong interest in and the value of internships was expressed. Piloting a Safety Net Youth Programme in Somaliland: Expansion of the internship programme to target the most vulnerable groups (low literacy rates among male youth, female youth, internal migrants from rural areas) and the most in-demand sectors. Developing a two-fold approach for youth employment : generation of a labour intensive programme targeting a higher number of youth beneficiaries, while developing niche activities aiming to promote more highly skilled activities (services sector, IT, more modern income generating activities) to pave the way for tomorrow’s markets while addressing the needs of today’s. Creating a specific focus on management, business, administration to build the skills of youth as doers and problem solvers.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
