About

image 1

Being aware of the status of youth is a very important prerequisite for a person involved in policy formulation and implementation. Every sector of the economy, be it industry, agriculture, security or infrastructure needs to have a finger on the pulse of youth. Unfortunately however, the current discourse around youth is narrowly confined to health, education and employment. We have been talking about the demographic dividend for almost a decade; but have not yet touched the mark with youth centered development policies. The aspirations of youth not only predict the trajectory of our development in the years to come, but also give momentum to our development wheel. The State of theUrban Youth, India 2013: Employment, Livelihoods and Skills has been my point of reference ever since I received it. The Report is what we would expect, a contribution from our academicians and practitioners from the sector with the help of international organizations.
