DFID's Youth Agenda: putting young people at the heart of development

DFID’s youth agenda: sharing the why, the what and the how of our approach to young people.



At DFID we are committed to putting young people at the heart of international development. This document is intended to share our position, outlining the need for a youth agenda, our youth policy framework and our approach to young people. It places the youth agenda within the wider context of DFID’s work, and the international development context more generally.

It shares our current position on youth, and our plans moving forwards. There is the opportunity to provide feedback or comments youth@dfid.gov.uk
