Living in the climate crisis: young people in Uganda

Living in the climate crisis: young people in Uganda

By Anna Barford, Rose Hardwick Olwell, Anthony Mugeere, Mollen Nyiraneza, Paul Magimbi, Charles Mankhwazi and Benard Isiko

This report documents the diverse livelihood strategies of young people living in Uganda, the impacts of climate change on their lives, and the adaptation and mitigation strategies that they have employed to address the crisis so far. By foregrounding views of young people, our research presents a vivid picture of how climate disruptions are already impacting young people.

Getting by: young people's working lives

By Anna Barford and Rachel Coombe

It draws on existing research and presents new findings on young people's experiences of work, to ask: how can we work with young people to better meet these challenges?

Making a life: a youth employment agenda

By Anna Barford and Katarzyna Cieslik

This report summarises key ideas from the Getting By workshop, held at Murray Edwards College, University of Cambridge in April 2019. This report focuses on how to address the challenge of insufficient decent work for young people in lower income countries. The report shares ideas and action points for policy, practice and research arising from a multi-sectoral discussion in which young people were active contributors.
