Rwanda Country Assessment for Youth Development Accounts

CSD is part of a global consortium that is exploring the potential for piloting a Youth Savings initiative in multiple developing countries. This brief is one of a series that CSD has prepared on candidate countries in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. This brief, like the others, assesses the candidate country on four criteria: institutional capacity, national political interest, research capacity, and broader macroeconomic environment. Rwanda is ideally positioned as a candidate demonstration site for multiple reasons that are detailed in this brief.
