Policy Brief on Youth Budget Framework

Due to the demographic window, Bangladesh has the opportunity of harnessing youth potential for achieving long term development objectives. Even though Government of Bangladesh (GoB) has associated investment in youth with the development trajectory of the country through various plans and policies, youth related discussions are not contextualized due to absence of policy coherence and consensus on intended outcomes. Lack of structured and holistic approach towards these discussions result in ineffective implementation of well-intended policies. Hence, this policy brief, jointly developed by ActionAid Bangladesh and SANEM (South Asian Network on Economic Modeling) construes that Bangladesh requires a formal, well-structured Youth Budget Framework (YBF) as part of the national budget to attain vital objectives by cashing in on demo- graphic dividend. A youth centric budget is intrinsically a framework of goals and visions to empower youths economically and socially. The designated monetary allocations in the budget will be analysed through a youth centric lens to equip the evidence-based policymaking process. In short, the youth budget framework will serve to represent the commitments of the Government of Bangladesh to invest holistically in youth development, alleviate challenges and bottlenecks which uniquely affect youths through various channels.

Policy Brief: Impact of COVID 19 on Entrepreneurs and Workers

To utilize Bangladesh’s current demographic window, Bangladesh must harness its youth potentials to achieve the long-term development. The increased ratio of young women and men who have access to economic opportunities and sustainable income sources will help us to achieve our targeted goals. Access to flexible finances for young women and men especially those with limited indemnity to venture into self-employment or social entrepreneurship plays a crucial role if we want to reap this opportunity. The Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) hold the most promise for creating jobs in both rural and urban areas. But the Covid-19 pandemic has hurt this sector as much it has affected our daily lives, specially the women entrepreneurs and workers. This policy brief is an attempt to explore the situation, challenge, and way forward on youth and women responsive strategy for MSMEs.

Discussion session & Drawing competition on ‘Climate Change’ & ‘Early Marriage’ in Keshabpur:

As a part of Child Rights week 2021, various initiatives had been taken at LRP level to ensure child participation. Along with the theme of Child Rights Week 2021, this time, we tried to highlight the theme ‘Climate Justice’ to incorporate the demand and desire of our children from the local to national level as well as international level at the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26. Along with that, a huge number of girls are at risk of child marriage. Though there is significant progress in recent years, still Bangladesh has the fourth highest prevalence of child marriage especially due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation, millions of girls are facing difficulties. School closures, isolation from friends and support networks, and rising poverty places girls at risk of child marriage.
