Uganda, which has the second-youngest population in the world, is creating economic opportunities for youth in the agriculture sector.
Centering Youth in Green Workforce Development .
Toolkit | August 12, 2022
In partnership with Unbounded Associates, we developed a set of resources to help international development organizations design inclusive, green programming and prepare young people for the transitioning workforce.
The climate crisis and ability to find decent jobs are two of the most urgent and significant issues facing young people. To address this, Chemonics and Unbounded Associates developed a set of resources to share the youth perspective on facilitating a just transition to the greening economy. These resources aim to provide development organizations with research-based practical guidance for implementing green workforce programming that responds to the priorities of youth seeking viable livelihoods and meaningful green futures. The guidance centers youth voices and draws from Positive Youth Development principles to determine how well youth are being introduced to green job opportunities, the degree to which they are feeling prepared to pursue such opportunities, and the extent to which these opportunities are responding to their lived realities.
