Green Institute executed Action-research:
In 2013 July, the Green Institute executed UN-Habitat funded “Youth-led action research on Land” project. TNW Nepal commissioned the Green Institute to implement the research project, funded by the UN- Habitat and GLTN. One of the key outputs of the project was the Youth and Land Responsiveness Criteria tool (YLRC). The purpose of the Youth and Land Responsiveness Criteria tool is to ensure that youth and land issues are integrated into land programs and projects in a systematic and comprehensive way, in order to achieve secure tenure for all.
