In the aftermath of the social movements for change that have shaken the region since January 2011, UNFPA together with young people in an inclusive, bottom-up approach, revisited UNFPA's work in the Arab States. This resulted in a Strategic Framework for Programming on Young People in the Arab States. The document rests on three pillars:

  • Facilitate equitable access to decent employment and livelihoods through strengthened youth capacities and life-skills
  • Improve young people’s sexual and reproductive health by ensuring access to high quality information, education and services
  • Create a conducive environment toward civic engagement for young people in order to accelerate social and economic development and promote a culture of dialogue, tolerance and peace building skills, communication skills, leadership and life skills in the context of youth-adult partnerships
