United Nations System-wide Action Plan on Youth Report

— theme: Youth Employment, Youth Employment Policies and Programmes
— country: Global
— type: Evaluations

The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN DESA), in its role as permanent co-chair of the UN Inter-agency Network on Youth Development, was requested to take the lead in developing and overseeing the implementation of the Youth-SWAP. This report herein provides an update of that process and of the implementation of the Youth-SWAP during its first year at national, regional, and international levels. The Youth-SWAP identifies five thematic areas in which to advance cooperation and collaboration: employment and entrepreneurship; protection of rights and civic engagement; political inclusion; education, including comprehensive sexuality education; and health. Each of these five thematic areas leverages the potential of the work of the United Nations in other related areas of youth development, such as sustainable development, climate change, culture, peacebuilding and gender equality.
