Report Summary

The Eastern and Southern Caribbean Youth Assessment (ESCYA) was designed to provide the United States Agency for International Development, Mission to Barbados and Eastern Caribbean (USAID/BEC), with a cross-sectoral analysis of the regional youth development landscape, paying particular attention to the needs of “at-risk” and vulnerable youth.

Specifically, the report was intended to inform the development of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014–18 Regional Development Cooperation Strategy (RDCS) and a youth-specific Development Objective (DO) within the USAID/BEC Mission Results Framework. Findings from the assessment were used to present conclusions and recommendations that point out areas of urgent need and propose actionable changes be undertaken across the region and sectors assessed.
