Youth are a challenging demographic for humanitarian and development agencies to reach. Innovation and technology offer new possibilities for engaging with youth, but the effectiveness of these mechanisms has yet to be demonstrated due to the challenges with population transience and the fragile contexts where projects are implemented.

Meraki Labs is working with the University of Geneva and InZone to develop a participatory methodology for youth engaging in projects to evaluate their effectiveness. The project aims to develop a toolkit that is appropriate for a variety of contexts, to enable comparison and broader learning.
