Young People’s Transition to Adulthood - Progress and Challenges

image of World Youth Report 2007

Today’s young people are the best educated generation of youth in history. However, the World Youth Report 2007 argues that for many young people, the transition to adulthood is slowed down by poverty and their inability to find decent work. The Report provides an in-depth look at key issues of concern to youth in the major regions of the world and points out that because of social and cultural constraints, many young people are excluded from accessing quality education, decent employment, health and other resources and services. The Report emphasizes that policymakers must focus not only on developing young people’s capacities through greater investment in areas such as education, health and skills training, but they must also provide and protect opportunities for young people to participate in development as a matter of priority. For the first time, the Report introduces a statistical annex that provides data on youth development indicators.

Ensuring youth development around the world: The way forward

More than 10 years after the adoption of the World Programme of Action for Youth to the Year 2000 and Beyond, many youth continue to have limited access to opportunities for selfdevelopment, which reduces the contribution they can make to national development.
