The Jobs Group developed seven short but in-depth Solutions Notes addressing key jobs challenges. The Jobs Solutions Notes synthesize findings from the Jobs Umbrella Multidonor Trust Fund (MDTF)-funded activities and other sources based on research, evaluations, pilots, and operations. The seven Solutions Notes are:
The Solutions Notes – based on broad consultation for a specific topic and relevant to jobs – succinctly analyze efforts and challenges and provides a candid evaluation of what has worked, and what does not, using a clear format:
- Motivation: Lays out the problem.
- What Are We Doing: Describes all WBG, Jobs MDTF, and other development partner efforts.
- What Works: Identifies key strategies and specific program aspects proven effective.
- What Next: Identifies knowledge gaps and a research and investment agenda to close them.
While the range of evidence and scale of application vary, the Solution Notes provide a meaningful and accessible resource to transfer curated knowledge, solutions and approaches to practitioners—especially project managers for jobs-related interventions—across the world.
