UNDP Nepal Youth Strategy 2018-2022

Back to top

This Youth Strategy is intended to serve as a guideline for UNDP Nepal in identifying key entry points for systematic and coordinated action to support youth empowerment, effective advocacy and mainstreaming of youth issues, policy development, technical and programmatic partnerships, youth-related research and knowledge management, and impact assessment. Importantly, the three main pillars or outcomes that hold up the strategy are perfectly aligned with the outcomes of UNDP’s Country Programme 2018-2022.

This strategy reflects UNDP’s bid for heightened engagement with young people, in recognition of their roles as both development beneficiaries and actors. In trying to address the aspirations of youth, it also seeks to create an enabling environment for inclusive and meaningful participation of young people in development discussions, formal planning, programming and decision-making processes.
