The main messages of this report are as follows:
Based on the reviewed literature, 13 innovations, interventions, and policies were identified as promising to increase employment in AFS, improve AFS employment inclusivity, and/or generate better working conditions in AFS. These 13 innovations, interventions, and policies are well documented in the literature. Some have been evaluated in specific locations and are frequently mentioned as promising options that require more analysis to become sound recommendations on how to improve AFS employment in the Global South.These 13 identified innovations, interventions, and policies are promising, but still require more research and debate about how to obtain the identified positive effects in different contexts. The research challenge for most of them is to identify how to implement them effectively in different settings and get the same or better results.
This review included 290 texts, mostly journal articles, but also book chapters and reports.
