The Youth and Land Responsiveness Criteria (YLRC) is a tool developed by GLTN partners with a purpose to assess land programmes and policies objectively to ensure that youth and land issues are equitably addressed in order to achieve tenure security for all.
The tool can be used to evaluate existing land tools in terms of their responsiveness to youth and to identify where and how they can be more responsive to youth’s needs and concerns for land. It also provides strong opportunities to involve youth actively in the process and to get first-hand knowledge on the experiences of youth in relation to land issues.
How to use the tool?
The Guide to the Youth and Land Responsiveness Criteria presents key criteria in the form of a matrix with various probing questions about different issues that youth face with regard to land. It can be used to identify challenges, opportunities and key entry points on youth and land at global, regional and/or country levels.
It can be used:
- as a diagnostic tool
- as an awareness and advocacy tool
- for designing new youth responsive land programms/projects.
