CROSS-CUTTING SYSTEMS


At RECONOMY, we map out individual country challenges while at the same time maintain a regional perspective.


Rather than doing one size fits all approach, we identify and test innovative ideas that bring benefits to more countries in the region. This in practice means identifying relevant economic sectors that offer opportunities and addressing key constraints in cross-cutting systems such as finance, trade and migration, skills and intermediation, technology and digitalization, regulatory systems, and green economic development.



Finance


Trade & migration


Skills & intermediation


Technology & digitalization


Regulatory systems


Green economic development


MAIN GOAL


To enable women and young people, in particular excluded and disadvantaged groups, to benefit from economic opportunities by increasing their income and taking up decent jobs, inclusively and sustainably.


WORKSTREAMS

To achieve the main goal, RECONOMY works along three workstreams.


Skill Gap & Employment Opportunities

Increasing the (self)employability and income generation of the target groups by improving formal and informal training offer. Ensure the training is improved and available to the target groups and ensure strengthened and diversified intermediation.


Financial & Business Services

Improvement of business and financial services to help enterprises grow, invest and create more/new economic opportunities.


Policies & Regulations

Improving advocacy in the areas of policy, regulatory, legislative and administrative to help target groups and enterprises increase their participation and voice to advocate for better economic opportunities.
