MetadataShow full item record
Empower Youth for Work (EYW) is a five-year program (2016-2021) run by Oxfam, funded by the IKEA Foundation. The program focuses on enabling young people, especially young women, in climate change affected rural areas of Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia and Ethiopia to seek and obtain decent work. Working with a wide range of stakeholders (including young people, government and the private sector), the program applies a holistic approach to tackle issues of economic empowerment, gender-based discrimination, youth agency and enabling policy and normative environments – all of which affect young people’s opportunities for and choices about employment. The program activities promote climate-friendly practices and support young people and their communities in adapting to the effects of climate change.
