Published on Thu, 17/10/19 | News, Research

A new report “Enhancing the Economic Participation of Vulnerable Youth Women in Solomon Islands” financed by the World Bank’s East Asia and Pacific Umbrella Facility for Gender Equality was launched today.

The study, including field research designed and overseen by Dr Anouk Ride, identifies constraints to, and effective measures for, increasing the economic participation of vulnerable young women in urban and peri-urban areas of Solomon Islands. The findings will inform both the SIG’s Community Access and Urban Services Enhancement (CAUSE) project, as well as development partners supporting gender, youth and disability livelihood activities in Solomon Islands.
