USAID/Zimbabwe seeks to collaborate with a local entity operating in the informal economy to conduct an in-depth assessment of Zimbabwe’s informal economy under the program title:
Youth, Employment and Informality - An Informal Economy Assessment.Lacking financial resources, capacity and recognition,
stakeholders in Zimbabwe's informal economy struggle to carry out deep and extensive assessments of this growing economy.
Some stakeholders struggle to make evidence-informed decisions as they serve their members who are mostly young men and women (aged 15-35 years).
At the same time, due to the sometimes ‘underground’ nature of informal economic activities and the lack of information, development organizations have difficulty designing programs and activities that adequately reach and meet the needs of the informal economy actors, especially young men and women.
This assessment is part of the Local Works Zimbabwe Youth Program.
