Développement de l’Industrie Créative et Réduction du Chômage des Jeunes au Cameroun : une Approche par la Matrice de Comptabilité Sociale
[Creative Industry Development and reduction of Youth Unemployment in Cameroon: A Social Accounting Matrix Approach]
AbstractThe aim of this article is to examine and measure the importance of the development of the creative industry in the fight against youth unemployment in Cameroon. To achieve this assignment we conducted a quantitative and qualitative analysis of youth labor market and an analysis of the social accounting matrix of Cameroon that we constructed supplemented by a small survey. This analysis allowed us to highlight the fact that youth are most affected by unemployment and to present policy recommendations for the development of the creative industry of Cameroon which, with its multidimensional aspect, could contribute more to absorb much of youth unemployment than now.
