Qatar’s Third National Human Development Report: Expanding the Capacities of Qatari Youth – Mainstreaming Young People in Development
In November 2008 His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani, Heir Apparent, launched Qatar National Vision 2030 (QNV 2030). QNV 2030 foresees Qatar continuing to transform into a diversified and advanced knowledge economy—capable of sustaining its own development and providing for a high standard of living for all its people for generations to come.
To help make its vision a reality, Qatar launched its first National Development Strategy in March 2011. The strategy is an ambitious plan of action containing priority national development programmes with related outcomes and targets.
Through QNV 2030 and National Development Strategy 2011–2016, Qatar aspires to build a safe, secure and stable society. Fulfilling that vision begins with strengthening families and ensuring that all citizens are protected in their homes, jobs and communities. Also, enhancing the physical, emotional and intellectual well-being of individuals, especially youth, will ensure long-term excellence.
As part of the General Secretariat for Development Planning’s efforts to support the achievement of QNV 2030 and the programmes of the National Development Strategy 2011–2016, Qatar’s third National Human Development Report turns the spotlight onto youth. With the theme of expanding the capacities of Qatari youth, the third National Human Development Report focuses on the development challenges and opportunities confronting Qatar’s youth.
