Young women’s livelihoods in vulnerable urban areas

Published on Sun, 24/03/19 | News, Research

In March 2019 a stakeholder workshop was held to confirm the findings of research on young women’s livelihoods in vulnerable urban areas. The research conducted by Dr Anouk Ride and Sukwadi Media and Research involved interviews and workshops with 151 young women not engaged in full time study or work in communities considered disadvantaged in terms of access to services, land tenure and incomes. The report was commissioned by the World Bank to inform the Community Access & Urban Services Enhancement Project (CAUSE), a World Bank financed project implemented by the Honiara City Council (HCC) (in coordination with the Guadalcanal, Malaita and Western Provincial Governments) and the Ministry for Infrastructure Development (this was formerly known as Rapid Employment Project). The report is being finalised and will be available later in 2019.
