Spotlight on Youth
'The combination of youth and innovation has the potential to create solutions to development challenges and to transform societies.’
— Helen Clark, Administrator, UNDP
The United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon has made working with and for young people one of the top priorities in his Five-year Action Agenda. For UNDP, the full involvement of young men and women in participatory processes is vital to achieving sustainable human development. In 2012, UNDP embarked simultaneously on consultations on the post-2015 development framework, on the preparation of its new Strategic Plan for 2014-2017 and on the preparation of its first organization wide strategy to inform on-going and future programming and policy development on youth.
