Room to Breathe:

What works to support CSOs for inclusive development

Dear reader,

This newly-launched synthesis report, Room to breathe: what works to support CSOs for inclusive development, marks the closing chapter of the NWO-WOTRO/Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ research programme New roles of CSOs for inclusive development’, coordinated and executed by INCLUDE. In the report, the authors synthesize the evidence and knowledge generated from the eight research projects within the programme across five cross-cutting themes.

Context-conscious approach crucial for sustainable jobs

We invite you to re-watch the joint webinar by INCLUDE and Youth Employment Funders Group on boosting productivity and job creation through enterprise involvement. In this webinar, Evert-Jan Quak presents the key findings of the evidence synthesis paper Private sector development interventions and better-quality job creation for youth in Africa, with comments provided by Theodore Klouvas, Programme Manager of Orange Corners Africa & Middle East (RVO).

Kind regards,
INCLUDE Secretariat
