61st Session of the Commission for Social Development

Under the instructions of the President of the Republic, His Excellency Paul BIYA, the Minister of Social Affairs, madam Pauline Irène NGUENE, is leading the Cameroonian delegation to the 61st Session of the United Nations Commission for Social Development,

which is holdong from 6 to 15 February 2023, in New York, under the main theme: " Creating full and productive employment and decent work for all as a way of overcoming inequalities to accelerate the recovery from the Covid-19  pandemic and the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development".

 The Commission for Social Development held a Ministerial forum on 7 February 2023 under the main theme: "Creating full and productive employment and decent work for all as a way of overcoming inequalities to accelerate the recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic and the full implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development". Madam Pauline Irène NGUENE, Minister of Social Affairs said that the Government of Cameroon has adopted social protection measures to support macroeconomic resilience, as well as some populations, especially the most vulnerable. The employment measures focus on six areas: public investment projects; improving rural employment and income; migration of the informal economy; creating and maintaining jobs in major companies of the private sector; providing training for employment and regulating the labour market. In order to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable, the Cameroon Government intends to increase and diversify the flow of vocational and technical information, to strengthen and use high-intensity work approaches, and to implement community-based projects to encourage social and economic inclusion. Despite these initiatives for productive employment and decent work, the country continues to face some challenges, she said. She pointed out that 40% of the population are young people, and that many of them are seeking employment. As such, the Government is committed to providetraining programmes, as well as for workers in the informal sectors. A number of initiatives have also been taken out of Cameroon for the benefit of Socially Vulnerable Persons. Such programmes depend on strong international partners and are supported by innovative funding.
