Regional workshop on Formulating National Youth Policies and Action Plans

EPOC's Development Policy Regional Adviser facilitated the workshop together with officials from UNICEF Pacific office, the Commonwealth Youth Programme, and the Secretariat for the Pacific Community. Workshop participants learnt the importance of consultation and involvement of stakeholders in developing national policies as well as how to conduct a workshop in their own countries to develop national youth policy objectives and strategies. A toolkit will be developed following the workshop to provide the necessary resources for national youth officers to organise the preparation of youth policies and their review.
