Youth System-Wide Action Plan

The final report of the Youth System-Wide Action Plan “Youth-SWAP” is out. The report presents findings from the 2014-2016 Global Youth-SWAP Survey as well as narrative examples of  UN’s work in the field covering Brazil, China, Egypt, Haiti, Kyrgyzstan, Montenegro, Morocco, Sierra Leone, Somalia and Sri Lanka. The report took stock of the United Nations work on youth and aims to use the information to bolster inter-agency collaboration and programming in youth issues at the global, regional, and national levels. This will also provide the baseline data to inform the new United Nations Strategy on Youth, which was requested by the Secretary-General in 2017 to incorporate his vision on conflict prevention, the UN Pillars, and the 2030 Agenda for sustainable development.
