Hi friends!
I’m so excited to introduce and link you to the World Conference on Youth 2014 ‘Mainstreaming Youth in the Post 2015 Development Agenda.’ I hope you find my blog resourceful!
There are 1.2 billion youth in the world; it’s been 20 years since the Earth Summit in Rio, 14 years since the Braga Youth Declaration, The world will need 600 million new jobs over the next decade. Today youth are the world. UN secretary General Ban Ki Moon has put Youth as the most important top agenda for the world recently has stated that he will appoint a special advisor on youth. At present, 62 per cent of the world’s youth live in Asia and 17 per cent (the next largest proportion) live in Africa; the population of young men and women in the two regions totals about 960 million.

For the vast majority of youth living in developing countries, unemployment rates tell only part of the story. For young people in these areas, informal, non-secure, and low-wage employment is the norm, with labour activity among youth concentrated in agriculture and related industries and in the informal sector.

Education is another essential element in the transition to adulthood. However, a substantial number of young people in developing countries continue to face challenges relating to educational access and quality.

Youth of this world need to have there effective participation increase in the decision making of post -2015 development agenda, facilitate effective partnerships, create inclusive platforms to review the progress of MDGs, and establish a follow- up mechanism that support young people as partners in the global implementation of the post -2015 development agenda at UN level. Sri Lanka has offered to support this timely youth agenda by proposing a United Nations World Conference on Youth in 2014.
