MER BTF Project Specialist             


Youth employment crisis in Southeast Asia has been exacerbated by the current COVID-19 pandemic and will have lasting economic impacts for years to come, particularly for vulnerable groups like women, migrants, victims of human trafficking and those with disabilities. The COVID-19 crisis has devastated livelihoods, stunted local businesses, and essentially shut down global economies causing unprecedented levels of unemployment. According to the International Labor Organization (ILO), 84.4% of youth ages 15 to 24 in the Asia-Pacific region work in informal employment, and the pandemic has hit the informal sector the hardest. The negative economic impacts of COVID-19 will likely result in a ‘crisis cohort’ even for those graduating from secondary and tertiary schools this yearThese young people will continue to face higher unemployment, lower pay, and worse job prospects up to a decade later, compared to those who entered work pre-COVID and the global economic downturn. In Indonesia and Vietnam, the pandemic will continue to deepen economic vulnerabilities for young people working in the informal sector especially women and migrants. In order to reduce the youth unemployment crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in Southeast Asia, Plan International, will deliver market-driven vocational and job-matching solution with the potential for scale, beginning with a pilot that targets the most vulnerable young people across Indonesia and Vietnam. Whilst, COVID-19 has further exposed the large skills gap among youth across the ASEAN region. Skills development is key to fostering the resilience of young people when facing rapid changes in prospects for employment and entrepreneurship in the sectors that are hit hardest by the crisis.  While some sectors will continue to suffer due to COVID-19 for years to come, others will see a spike in recovery and growth (e.g. health, personal care and ICT); there is a timely and tremendous need to identify and match labor market needs with proper skills development to effectively address the skills gap challenge in the post-COVID era. In view of the above, the M&E coordinator will be hold responsibility to ensure that the project M&E framework is in place, functional and utilized to gather evidence on how well specific project are on track to achieve their impacts.
