HRSD has previously invested in building economic opportunities and capabilities among youth who are not in employment, education or training through its Youth at Work programme in Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and Niue. HRSD will adapt the Youth at Work model to address the current economic context, with a focus on unemployed and out-of-school youth, including those who have disabilities, are from remote islands, LGBTQI and young women.
The results we are striving for are:
- Civil society (including women and young people) have the capacity and positioning to influence policies and programmes.
- Skills and opportunities grow for income generation and sustainable livelihoods among women, young people, artists and cultural producers.
- Regional leadership improves implementation of human rights and social development priorities at a national level.
- Human rights and social development knowledge inform national policies and development programmes.
