An Action Guide
This Action Guide aims to provide practical and actionable guidance to International Development Organizations (IDOs) on how to better respond to the diverse needs of young people as their countries undergo complex transitions to a greener economy.
This Action Guide draws on the findings from a literature review as well as insights from consultations with 16 young people (seven females, nine males — five from Latin America and
the Caribbean, five from Southeast Asia, five from Sub-Saharan Africa, and one from North America), as well as project staff and youth participants from 10 Chemonics-implemented projects (three projects based in Southeast Asia, three projects based in Latin America and the Caribbean, four projects based in Sub-Saharan Africa). The
Action Guide is intended for IDOs to help inform their design and implementation of international development programs related to youth green workforce development. The Action Guide provides a youth-centered perspective on how economies and societies are changing in response to climate change, and how IDOs can better support young people’s desires to build livelihoods for a more sustainable future.
