FIELD-Support LWA's insight:

The recommendations in this report are intended to help USAID/PEPFAR and its partners overcome key operating challenges. For instance, the assessment found that programs lacked standards, frameworks, and guidelines for ES activities, which were often considered of secondary importance to other HIV/AIDS interventions. ES activities were not market driven or sustainable, nor founded on an understanding of household economies and vulnerability. The return on investment was impossible to calculate because there was little information about budgets allocated to ES programs and no consistent measure of impact at the household level.


In response, in this report, LIFT presents three sets of recommendations: (1) strategic guidance to help PEPFAR manage and improve its ES portfolio; (2) standards of practice that all ES programs should follow; and (3) program-specific recommendations for partners and their USAID program managers. These are discussed in furhter detail in the atached PDF.

Guidelines and Experiences for Including Youth in Market Assessments for Stronger Youth Workforce Development Programs | FIELD-Support LWA | Scoop.it

FIELD-Support LWA's insight:

The learning product is based on the experiences of three organizations, Education Development Center (EDC), Save the Children, and the International Rescue Committee (IRC), that conducted market assessments to develop and maintain market-driven youth workforce development programs. (See the annex for project descriptions and a summary of each organization’s assessments.) It shares the benefits and challenges of different approaches to market assessment and provides lessons learned and recommendations.
