The Global Partnership Monitoring Framework has 10 indicators with specific descriptions and targets. While there is a gender indicator, there is no indicator for youth. The youth are a unique and dynamic constituency who are in danger of being left behind in the 2030 Agenda. Youth policy development, programming and interventions at global and national levels require good evidence based on disaggregated data. A youth indicator could be used to develop new policies and strengthen the existing ones for effective youth economic empowerment.
In this Amphitheatre Session, participants will discuss the value of adding a youth indicator to the monitoring framework, identifying the gaps that it would fill and the contribution it would make to improving the effectiveness of development co-operation.
