ASEAN Youth Development Index
Indonesian Youth Development Index
Cambodian Youth Development Index
NAPS was contracted by UNFPA to bring an international overview of youth development measures to be considered in the construction of a Cambodian YDI (CYDI). NAPS also facilitated workshops with youth representatives, NGOs and Government on issues facing youth in Cambodia and summarised these for inclusion in the CYDI and associated report. Data was sourced from already publicly available data at the province level to show a finer level picture of youth development across the country than other existing indexes. The results and analysis, along with thematic issues chapters, were included in the final report. The results were also taken on a capacity building tour to provinces.
WORLD YOUTH REPORT
In 2017 NAPS was contracted by The United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) to create a Statistical Annex of youth-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the World Programme of Action for Youth (WPAY) indicators at global and regional levels. This work included data mining of the UN Statistics Division’s SDG data base, as well as requesting data from organisations such as the World Health Organisation, World Bank, and Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights. Publicly available data from United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), International Labour Organization, Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME), The United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS) and other validated and comparable sources were also included. Editing of those chapters in the report pertaining to the use of data as evidence was also provided.
STATE OF pacific Youth
In 2018 NAPS was contracted by the Commonwealth Secretariat to facilitate the creation of the new State of Youth in the Pacific report. A review of the 2016 draft report was conducted including a desktop review of the region’s performance against Global YDI and SDG indicators. NAPS provided inputs to strengthen the policy recommendations and the monitoring and evaluation frameworks already in place. This work is ongoing.
Bangladesh Youth Development Index Framework. The purpose of the engagement is to assess the feasibility of a YDI and develop a framework which will measure development equalities and inequalities including, but not limited to health, education, social, cultural and economic status of youth.
NAPS facilitated workshops with youth and youth policy experts to identify current priorities for youth development in Bangladesh. A literature review was conducted to provide an overview of the current situation for youth. The YDI report will provide quantitative assessment to measure progress made in several somatic areas that align with the national policies of Bangladesh and provide a set of disaggregated data - at least by age, sex and division. The YDI will triangulate data to inform the national status in reference to regional and international commitments including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
