The State of the Field in Youth Led Development: Through the lens of the UN-Habitat Urban Youth Fund


The State of the Field in Youth Led Development is the second report in the Global Youth-Led Development series. Informed by earlier findings from a web-based survey of the youth-led development initiatives, it analyzes data derived from UN-Habitat Urban Youth fund projects. In contrast to the first report, this report focuses only on registered youth-led groups, drawing an application and monitoring and evaluation data from the youth fund applicants to examine the organizational context, operations and capacity of these groups. The report reveals some key aspects of organizational functioning that deserve more attention and support, and suggest potential leverage points where outside funding or other types of support (training, space, equipment, technical service etc.) might make the most difference in supporting the organizations engaged in youth-led development.
