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.
STATE OF pacific Youth
In 2017 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
The purpose of Bangladesh Youth Development Index Framework 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).
status OF African Youth report
The Status of African Youth Report (SoAYR) is crucial in delivering the goal of youth development and empowerment, which feeds into the overall development of the continent, through understanding the current landscape of youth issues and what policies and programmes exist to address these issues. It also examines the impact of interventions and identifies areas for optimization for stronger and more desirable results, which serves to strengthen the capacity of AU Member States to respond to youth development considerations. As the Senior International Consultant NAPS mandate is to ensure quality data be used in this report and aid in evidence informed policy creation.
The report will comprise an exhaustive account on the current state of youth on the continent based on indicators aligned to the pillars of the demographic dividend. Further to analysing the current situation faced by young people in Africa, the report will also emphasize on pockets of innovation in various sectors within the five regions of the continent. This is to highlight innovative solutions towards achieving Africa’s Demographic Dividend. Moving forward, it will be a key document for policymakers across the continent, for informed decisions and policies which directly respond to youth issues and create opportunities to transform the dynamism, innovation and energy of young people into a conduit for meaningful development
