Early Childbirth: An Uncharted Barrier to Expanding Girls' Economic Pathways

MarketShare Associates, CARE USA, CARE Bangladesh

Early childbirth among married adolescent girls can be a key barrier to many economic development and youth empowerment programs reaching scale. Often, this issue is not considered in economic programming even though it is often a key constraint for girls and women in capitalizing on potential economic pathways. This presentation covers experiences on how to ensure early childbirth does not limit program success and how girls’ economic opportunities can be supported to reduce early childbirth.

Assessment of Integrated Workforce Development and Sexual and Reproductive Health Interventions with Recommendations for the Future

FHI 360

Improving the lives of youth is critical to local, national, and international development. The needs of youth are complex and therefore broader than any one sector of development. Multisector programs that focus on the whole person are promising for having a greater impact on youth than single-sector approaches. More specifically, theoretical perspectives and evidence from research suggest that two sectors important for encouraging the well-being of youth — workforce development (WfD) and sexual and reproductive health (SRH) — are interrelated and mutually supportive.

Early Childhood Engagement for Lifelong Learning

Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL)

From conception to five years of age, early childhood is an extremely important period for cognitive and psychosocial development. Children’s high levels of brain plasticity and neurogenesis make them especially receptive to external stimuli. Young children’s minds are still learning how to learn, and simple play activities that stimulate the brain through all the senses can help improve their ability to think, communicate, and connect with others. Research from around the world suggests that guaranteeing such early childhood stimulation is critical.

Adolescent Girls Empowerment Program (AGEP): Mid-Term Findings

Population Council

Social isolation, economic vulnerability, and lack of access to health care and education prevent healthy transitions from childhood to adulthood, especially for vulnerable adolescent girls in developing countries. In Zambia, poor girls often are at high risk of gender-based violence, unintended pregnancy, and HIV. Many drop out of school, are unable to find employment, lack the ability to make independent decisions, and are not being reached by existing programs for young people.

Youth Service America

The SDGs build on the success of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and aim to go further to end all forms of poverty. The new Goals are unique in that they call for action by all countries - regardless of income - to promote prosperity while protecting the planet. They recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and addresses a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

CHALLENGE: Calling Egyptian Youth - GE Egypt Digital Innovation Challenge, September 2016

All Africa

The paradox of the Industrial Internet is that it's expected to have a much bigger impact on the economy than the consumer internet, all while doing things that aren't as eye-catching as hailing a taxi, sending messages to friends or streaming music. Instead, the Industrial Internet helps us do extremely important things like stabilize the power grid, help hospitals track their equipment or remotely monitor a rail fleet.
