Children and Youth

In a rapidly urbanizing world children and youth face many challenges ranging from homelessness, high unemployment, crime, violence, drug abuse, lack of access to basic services, poverty, and exploitation as they migrate from rural to urban areas, and across nation states. However, urbanization also presents huge opportunities for youth advancement. The youth are leaders in innovation, the drivers of technology and the digital age, essential for enhanced implementation of SDGs and the New Urban Agenda.
