Project Summary, Objectives and Results

Project Summary

The project supports the Government of Kazakhstan Strategic Plan for Development 2020 (human capital development, economic strengthening for diversification and sustained growth, communal services, and interethnic stability), as well as various policies related to youth, particularly the Concept of State Youth Policy 2020. A broad approach to positive youth development that promotes youth service, skills development, and initiative is fully aligned with the legal framework set forth for youth programming in Kazakhstan.

The project will also produce important evaluations to inform subsequent policies and youth programs.
