REPORT: Putting Young People at the Heart of Development, April 2016

The Department for International Development’s Youth Agenda

We are in the midst of a unique youth bulge where 1.8 billion people are between the ages of 10-24. This is particularly acute in developing countries where 90% of all young people live, with 42% of them in DFID countries. At the Department for International Development we are committed to putting these young people at the heart of our work. Our programming will support young people to make successful transitions to adulthood, and we will work with young people as agents of social change and as passionate advocates seeking to shape and influence the world that they will inherit.
