The Global Youth Help Desk is a UN-Habitat initiative, developed in collaboration with partners, to provide up-to-date information on urban youth issues, regionally and globally. The site aims to promote best practices, knowledge sharing and action on urban youth issues. This initiative is an outcome of the UNHABITAT Youth Opportunities Fund.
This Fund supports urban youth in developing countries. It aims to advance the achievements of the Millennium Development goals and the Habitat Agenda by providing grants up to USD 25,000 to youth-led projects piloting innovative approaches to employment, good urban governance, shelter and secure tenure.
eSocialSciences is the primary activity of this Foundation, leveraging the skills and services of IRIS for creating new-age space for the dissemination of social science research and for enhancing the quality of social science research in India and the rest of Asia.
IRIS-KF has developed and designed the fully automated, user friendly, Multilanguage application portal for UN-HABITAT’s Youth-led Urban Projects Grant.
