The Resource Library serves as a broad resource hub, including over 1000 documents, training materials, wikis, and curated reports to increase readers' awareness, understanding, and proficiency of several topics in market systems development. Users have access to proposals, evaluation materials, and USAID policy updates, as well as training modules and wikis to boost skills and knowledge.
These resources are bolstered by the inclusion of curated USAID reports published on the USAID Development Experience Clearinghouse (DEC) which serves as a repository of reports from completed or ongoing USAID development projects around the globe. The full USAID Development Clearinghouse website can be accessed here.
Informality is a key characteristic of the Honduran labor market, which includes low-income and low productivity jobs. Informality has been persistent over time and there is a risk that it will increase if enough formal jobs are not generated in the post COVID-19 era. Therefore, it is important to develop policies that help improve the job security of young people engaged in the informal sector or at risk of entering informality.
