Young People in Arab States: Changing the World for the Better

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
