About the product

Mobilizing the creativity and passion of young people, and recognizing the unique perspective of youth on their current and future needs are quickly becoming national and international priorities. Drawing upon the best practices of those countries in the Asia and the Pacific region already engaged in the youth policy formulation process, this Manual provides guidelines for countries taking the first steps towards youth policy formulation. Along with providing background information on the concept, rationale and benefits of a National Youth Policy, the Manual addresses the formulation process; content of a National Youth Policy; the implementation process; and ways of measuring the effectiveness of a National Youth Policy programme.
