Overview :

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is a core member of the Partnership for Action on Green Economy (PAGE) together with the International Labor Organisation (ILO), UN Environment (UNEP), UN Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). The PAGE South Africa chapter is strengthened through the cooperation of the Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment (DFFE); the Department of Trade, Industry and Competition (the dtic); and the Department of Science and Innovation (DSI).

Since its launch in 2015, PAGE in South Africa has supported the strengthening of national coordination in green economy capabilities across Departments and sectors, to support the transition to a low-carbon and inclusive green economy. An important PAGE outcome is a deepened collaboration on green economy policy and planning processes across government and key institutions, as well as a social compact to support sectoral change on issues relating to a just transition to a green, low-carbon and climate-resilient economy.

In 2022 UNDP, funded by PAGE, implemented a “Youth Barometer” which surveyed 10 000 youth (aged 18 – 35) nationally. The survey questionnaire design was informed by previous surveys in a similar thematic area, such as the Peoples’ Climate Vote, the African Youth Survey 2020, the Afrobarometer 2018, and the 2016 South African Social Attitudes Survey. In addition, inputs were made from a wide range of stakeholders such as the Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment, the Presidential Climate Commission, United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the United Nations Framework on the Convention of Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Youth coordinators in South Africa. The questionnaire included both quantitative and qualitative questions. The survey was tested before being implemented with all necessary pivots made. Each individual response was checked for validity, credibility and reliability, and the data has been cleaned and is stored in Excel for ease of access. A report providing an overview of the responses received has been developed.

This assignment, the Knowledge Product service provider, refers to a professional service provider to prepare a final Youth Barometer report drawing on the data collected through the Youth Barometer 2022 as well as an in-depth policy analysis of policies and interventions related to youth AND climate change, green economy and the just transition
