WUSC Baseline Study Enumerator Jobs in Uganda
Background of the Project Young people are more likely to be unemployed than adults, with the global youth unemployment rate 3X higher than the adult rate of 4.3% (ILO, 2018). Across most labour market indicators, wide disparities exist between young women and men, underpinning and giving rise to wider gaps during the transition to adulthood. For example, the global labour force participation rate for young men stands at 53.9% compared to 37.3% for young women (ILO 2016). There is a growing body of evidence that specialized employment and entrepreneurship programs do work, especially when they target marginalized youth, and when they combine training with other forms of support. Given this background, IGNI+E aims to respond to these challenges by supporting 70+ partners across six countries to improve their performance in delivering inclusive and innovative programming that advances gender equality.
Through the improved performance of service delivery organisations, employers, government bodies, training institutions, advocacy groups, and a higher-performing and more inclusive ecosystem of stakeholders, IGNI+E will contribute to the improvement of the socio-economic well-being of poor and marginalised youth, particularly young women, by supporting partners to generate inclusive and sustainable employment and entrepreneurship opportunities.
Purpose of the Baseline Study
The process of developing the Baseline Study is part of the Project Implementation Plan (PIP), which provides an early opportunity for project partners to collaborate and begin putting in place a results-based monitoring, evaluation, research and learning (MERL) plan for the project.
Specific baseline values must be provided for all relevant indicators in the PMF as early as possible in the project’s lifecycle. Baseline data will then be used to inform the establishment of realistic and achievable targets, and provide a point of reference against which progress on or towards the achievement of outcomes can be monitored and evaluated.
The main research questions to be answered by the Baseline Study are:
● What is the state of poor and marginalised youth’s social and economic well-being in the six countries at the start of the project (particularly young women)?
● What are the project partners’ capacities to deliver inclusive, gender responsive, innovative and environmentally sustainable programming to vulnerable youth, in response to their needs, at the start of the project?
● What is the state of the enabling environment for sustainable economic opportunities for youth (particularly young women) in the six project countries?
● What is the current level of Canadians’ engagement in Canada’s sustainable development efforts?
