It aims to deepen knowledge of the interrelation between population and development issues. The fourth edition of this report is issued as one of the work programme activities of the Population and Social Development Section for the 2008-2009 biennium. These activities stress the need to treat youth as a distinct socio-demographic group that needs to be targeted by specific national policies.
