  1. The demographic dividend in Africa relies on investments in the reproductive health and rights of adolescents and youth: policy brief

    A demographic dividend can occur during a window of opportunity created by reductions in child mortality and a demographic shift to fewer dependent people relative to working-age individuals. The full realization of the sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) of adolescents and youth (ages 10 to 24) can facilitate gains in their health, well-being, and educational attainment. …

  2. Building the foundations for sustainable development: a case for global investment in the capabilities of adolescents

    Investment in the capabilities of the world's 1·2 billion adolescents is vital to the UN's Sustainable Development Agenda.

These returns were robust to substantial variation in assumptions. …

  5. The linkages between the MDGs and comprehensive sexuality education for young people

    More than 1.3 billion people - one in five people alive today - are adolescents aged 10-19. Paying attention to this large group of the global population is crucial if we want to achieve the Millennium Development Goals. MDG 2 - Achieve Universal Primary Education - is the goal dedicated to knowledge. It is a very ambitious goal, the target being to "ensure that, by 2015, children everywhere, boys and girls alike, will be able to complete a full course of primary schooling" but certainly falls short of looking into the quality and scope of the education. …
