Youth Policy Formulation Manual

Published on


The mobilisation of youth passion, creativity and unique perspectives of their current and future needs is now increasingly seen as both an international and national priority. While young men and women have always been considered an important target group in terms of national development planning efforts, there is a growing acceptance globally of the value of committing time and resources to initiatives that formulate specific national youth policy and an accompanying action plan. Youth policy formulation is now advocated as an essential mechanism for both the identification of youth needs and concerns, and as a way of promoting greater youth participation in the building of the society for both today and tomorrow.
