Youth Save Research Brief - Youth-Related Policies

Published on


Youth-related policies, YouthSave Research Brief 12-15. Youth Save is a pioneering project designed to study savings and development among low-income youth in Colombia, Ghana, Kenya, and Nepal. The goals of YouthSave research are to measure the uptake, savings outcomes, experiences, and impacts of Youth Savings Accounts (YSAs) on clients and financial institutions. The aim of the YouthSave learning agenda is to inform the design of savings products, services, and policies targeted for youth, and at the same time provide guidance in asset-building strategies for youth and their families. One of the learning methods—a multi-faceted case study—informs the “story” of YouthSave in each country from contextual and demand-side perspectives. Research Partners in all four countries, in collaboration with CSD, have conducted background research to understand the context of youth saving ahead of the launch of YSAs. This research brief highlights youth-related national policies in the four YouthSave countries.
