Youth: game changers in fragile contexts

In 2015, two-thirds of all poor people are living in fragile and conflict affected states (FCS). Currently, over 600 million youth worldwide live in these fragile and challenging contexts. They are the future generation, the potential game changers for their countries. However, fragility hinders young people’s sustainable development into the independence of adulthood. In the midst of violence and uncertainty, a key period in their transition to engaging with society and the world of work is being blocked.

This position paper shows case-based evidence from Burundi, El Salvador, the Central African Republic (CAR) and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The cases illustrate Cordaid’s multifaceted approach to investing in youth in fragile countries.
