REPORT: Findings from Five Youth-Inclusive Rural Finance Pilot Projects, IFAD Rural Youth Economic Empowerment Program (RYEEP) 2013-2016

Making Cents International

Rural youth in developing countries make up a large and vulnerable group. Globally, three quarters of the poor live in rural areas, and about one-half of this population is young people. This young and growing population confronts a number of challenges, including poor quality of education, lack of basic infrastructure, lack of access to or control of sufficient land for farming, and, for girls in particular, more traditional cultural norms, which severely hinder their ability to build sustainable livelihoods. In addition, accessing the financial services they need to support economic opportunities is more challenging than in urban areas, due to physical distances, the lack of financial products appropriate to rural youth circumstances, limited knowledge and experience with financial services, and poor protection measures. These challenges feed perceptions from rural youth that financial services are not accessible to them, and from providers that rural youth are not bankable.

PRESENTATION: What do Young People Want, Sep 2016

Naandi Foundation, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, McCann Global Health

What do young people really want? What drives and motivates them? What influences their behaviors? By better understanding this target group we can improve the effectiveness of our programming. This session will look at universal insights on what motivates young people from different countries, and how we can change key health and social behaviors of youth, especially adolescent girls, who are often economically and socially marginalized, to influence their future economic prospects. An example from India will be shared to highlight how access to information and communications technology (ICT) has great potential to develop soft skills and future economic opportunities for young girls.

PRESENTATION: Understanding Risk: A New Soft Skill for Positive Youth Development? Sep 2016

USAID, Pathfinder International

Positive Youth Development requires thinking more systemically about cross-sectoral factors affecting youth and equipping youth to navigate these factors. This includes sexual and reproductive health risk management as a workforce development (WFD) consideration. Participants will play "Pathways to Change", a game which can be used to stimulate youth to think about reasons for continuing certain behaviors. While the game helps youth understand their risky behaviors and how they can avoid them, it also helps those working with youth understand perceptions of barriers to and facilitators of change. Participants will also learn how the game can be a tool for data collection.
