Youth Mainstreaming in Development Planning

Transforming Young Lives

image of Youth Mainstreaming in Development Planning

Young people constitute one-quarter of the world’s population, and one-third of the population in developing nations. They have demonstrated their capabilities and vision as citizens and partners in development, signalling a vibrant and hopeful resource for the world.

Yet, young people do not benefit equitably from development outcomes. In the global north, they are poorer than their parents’ generation. In the global south, the dividends of economic growth are not adequately reaching them. Young people also face challenges in participating in decisions that affect their social, political and economic empowerment.

Against this backdrop, youth mainstreaming is a critical part of creating an egalitarian world and achieving social equality for young people. Youth Mainstreaming in Development Planning: Transforming Young Lives aims to initiate dialogue and mobilise cross-sectoral youth development strategies in order to strengthen intergenerational equity and justice.

It includes practical tools and techniques that will help policy-makers and practitioners in all sectors ensure inclusive planning to realise youth rights and capabilities.
