United Nations Inter-agency Network on Youth Development (IANYD) Youth-SWAP Survey Results out

The Inter-agency Network on Youth Development (IANYD) conducted an online survey in July-August 2012 to obtain inputs to the development of the UN System-wide Action Plan on Youth (Youth-SWAP). We would like to share the results with you to demonstrate how the proposals helped define the issues highlighted in the Youth-SWAP. To access the survey results, follow this link.The United Nations Inter-Agency Network on Youth Development (IANYD) is a network consisting of UN entities, represented at the headquarters level, whose work is relevant to youth. The aim of the Network is to increase the effectiveness of UN work in youth development by strengthening collaboration and exchange among all relevant UN entities, while respecting and harnessing the benefits of their individual strengths and unique approaches and mandates. In the framework of the World Programme of Action for Youth (WPAY) and its 15 priority areas, the Network advocates for, supports and reviews progress on the implementation of UN Resolutions, Conventions and the internationally agreed development goals that are youth-related. The Network also contributes to increasing the understanding and visibility of the UN System’s work on youth development. More information about the network can be found on the United Nations Inter-Agency Network on Youth Development's website.
