In 2017, Danida commissioned a review of its youth-related engagements in the overall development portfolio. The review resulted in the presentation of a Youth Package and increased focus on development by youth, not for youth. Time has come to operationalize the 19 recommendations, and Bente Consulting in collaboration with Next Generation Advice, GROWconsult and Development Close Up has been contracted to develop tools to mainstream and materialize a youth-focus and youth-engagement in the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs' programs and instruments. The assignment runs from August 2018 to January 2019 and contains different components: explorative data collection with Embassies and Country Programs in Mali, Uganda and Ethiopia; interviews with MFA staff; consultations with Youth Sounding Boards in the three countries and with youth organizations in Denmark; development of tools and a knowledge sharing platform; and organization of an international state-of-the art seminar to be held in Copenhagen in December 2018.
