The COVID19 crisis has had an immense impact in loss of employment across nations and sectors. Youth are one of the most impacted demographic groups as job security has become more precarious. With a main objective of addressing youth unemployment in recovery packages while remaining committed to climate progress, this project proposes a quantitative and qualitative research methodology to analyze the policy recommendations and financial figures found in economic recovery packages and policies. This research aims to reveal how governments can successfully use public funding, namely through economic recovery packages and climate finance to catalyze youth employment potentially through education and training, while simultaneously accelerating progress on climate goals.
