This report and its accompanying dataset contribute to an evidence-based approach to the Youth Action Plan for the EU’s external action, as well as to other youth policies in the EU and around the world. It supports the move towards greater coherence and coordination of policies and programmes on youth in the EU’s external action in three main way.
First, it traces the evolution of international, EU and national youth policies and programmes and describes the extent to which they are aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Second, it maps international data on youth across a series of main thematic areas, assessing the availability and accessibility of over 250 official and non-official indicators. Finally, it also highlights gaps and recommends steps to take towards greater coherence in, and more complete coverage of, international youth data with a particular focus on the priority topic of youth participation.
