World Youth Report 2007

The World Youth Report 2007 has recently been published by Youth at the United Nations. The report examines the challenges and opportunities existing for the world’s roughly 1.2 billion young people between the ages of 15 and 24. Distinct from the 2003 and 2005 editions, it provides a regional overview summarizing the major youth development trends in the fifteen priority areas of the World Programme of Action for Youth. The report explores major issues of concern to youth development, including employment, education, health, poverty, and violence. It also highlights youth as a positive force for development and provides recommendations for supporting their essential contributions.
