I found the website of the nonprofit organization, the Development Gateway Foundation, an extremely useful resource for learning about international best practices in poverty reduction and development. Especially striking is the Youth for Development initiative being led by UN-HABITAT posted on the website. In the previous post, I questioned how young people’s voices can be incorporated into the development process. UN-HABITAT addresses similar concerns and recognizes youth as active participants by initiating and fostering partnerships with youth organizations worldwide.
