With this guide, the aim is to equip readers with the basic set of concepts and tools needed to make informed decisions about how best to measure and evaluate the results of youth employment interventions. The entire life cycle of a youth employment intervention is reviewed, starting with diagnostics and programme design, then moving on to setting up a monitoring system and measuring results.
This report is based on substantive evidence and attempts to provide the kind of analysis that can inform policies, programmes and investments to promote a rural transformation that is inclusive of youth. It examines who rural youth are, where they live, and the multiple constraints they face in their journey from dependence to independence. A distinguishing feature of this report is that it examines rural development in the context of the transformation of rural areas and the wider economy. Opportunities for young women and men begin with a transformation towards a dynamic rural economy.
