United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, Bangkok (Thailand).
The report of a United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) Expert Group meeting, involving 13 experts from 10 countries, discusses planning national efforts to promote youth's role in development. Current systems and indicators used to assess the situation of rural and urban youth and their contribution to development are covered in the context of national problems and prospects. Two papers on the development of a model framework for planning, monitoring, and evaluating national efforts to promote youth participation in development are summarized. The framework of indicators identified at the meeting is specified. Recommended follow-up actions are listed, including a seminar to review implementation of the indicators, possible secondment of experts to monitor implementation, solicitation of appropriate financial and technical assistance from regional and international agencies, dissemination of the report to agencies in participants' own countries, and cooperation between ESCAP and other agencies to strengthen communication channels. An appendix includes the framework of indicators, presented as eight areas of concern (population, health and nutrition, housing and environment, education, employment and manpower development, public order and safety, community development and participation, and culture/leisure/recreation, divided into subareas, indicators, and classification.
