Evaluation of UNDP Support for Youth Economic Empowerment

SGRP

This report is the first comprehensive evaluation conducted by the Independent Evaluation Office to collect and analyse information about the UNDP contribution to youth economic empowerment, which includes support for entrepreneurship, employability and skills acquisition, combined with the promotion of inclusive policy change.

This evaluation sets out a series of recommendations for programmes and infrastructures to ensure that support to youth is relevant and meaningful. At the heart of recommendations to improve the inclusivity of UNDP strategic programming is the importance of balancing investment in individuals – namely training and support to entrepreneurship – with support for structural job creation.
