Maximising Impact of Youth Entrepreneurship Support in Different Contexts
Written by Karen Ellis and Carolin Williams, Overseas Development Institute
Context is increasingly being recognized as a significant determinant of the impact of an intervention, but significant gaps in knowledge exist about what approaches are most effective, why, and in what contexts. With scarce resources, governments, donors and NGOs need to improve their understanding of which youth entrepreneurship support interventions are likely to have the greatest impact - particularly against the backdrop of the growing ‘Value for Money’ debate.
This report provides an overview of a project which seeks to understand how youth entrepreneurship support initiatives need to be adapted in different contexts to maximize impact. The project aims to provide guidance to policymakers, program decision makers and those implementing youth entrepreneurship support initiatives on how to prioritize, develop and adapt policies and programs for young entrepreneurs to the constraints and opportunities in a particular context.
