SDG Youth Summit

In Bangladesh, more than 33 per cent of the total population represents youth aged between 18-35 years of age and the number of unemployed youths is increasing amidst the pandemic. Young job seekers are experiencing formidable challenges in securing employment and progressing their future career prospects.

In this backdrop, the non-state actors of Bangladesh are playing a major role in youth development and youth-related activities. In order to create a network of all these non-state actors, So this Summit addressing as Youth Pillar conducted a mapping exercise to systematically document the current youth-related activities of the Platform’s partner and non-partner organisations. This initiative aims to bring together the efforts of all these organisations under this Summit for better coordination and collaboration.
