Youth Participation in Development- Summary Guidelines for Development Partners

The Guide has been developed to assist development partners working with and for youth – including Governments, donor agencies, policy makers, NGOs and civil society – and to increase understanding of the growing importance of, and greater potential for, youth participation in development. The Guide goes beyond the rhetoric of many policy advocacy papers by exploring key issues and approaches and providing practical information and promising case studies to assist donor agencies and policy makers on how to work with youth at the operation level in respect of policy and programming.

This Guide has been produced by Restless Development and the UN Programme on Youth (UNPY). The Guide is a summary of the 2010 publication “Youth Participation in Development – A Guide for Development Agencies and Policy Makers”, developed by the UK Department for International Development- Civil Society Organisation (DFID-CSO) Youth Working Group coordinated by Restless Development.
