Arab Development Portal, Youth in the Arab Region, 2019

Adolescents and youth in the Arab region currently account for nearly one-third of the total population. In this region, youth have emerged as a catalysing force for positive change and proved to be integral to building a more prosperous and stable future for themselves and their communities. In recognition of their key role, the Arab Development Portal (ADP) dedicates this special edition to the youth of this region, acknowledging the challenges they face and the potential they carry to implement the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in their countries and the region.

In recognition of the vital role of youth to implementing the 2030 Agenda, the Arab Development Portal – UNDP RBAS and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) have joined forces to co-develop a youth thematic page to highlight the challenges facing young people today and the emerging opportunities they have access to.
