This report presents findings from the 2014-2016 Global Youth-SWAP Survey as well as narrative examples of the UN’s work in the field covering Brazil, China, Egypt, Haiti, Kyrgyzstan, Montenegro, Morocco, Sierra Leone, Somalia and Sri Lanka. It takes stock of recent and ongoing United Nations work on youth, and aims to further bolster inter-agency collaboration and programming on youth issues at the global, regional and national levels, and inform the UN Strategy on Youth the IANYD is mandated to develop, as per the 2017 decision of current UN Secretary-General António Guterres.

It is also envisioned as a useful baseline, which could inform cutting-edge policy and programming support moving forward, and as an advocacy tool to further promote coherence and coordination on youth within the UN System at all levels.
