Which countries have a national youth policy?
In our 2014 report on the state of youth policy, we documented that 122 of 198 countries (62%) have a national youth policy, up from 99 (50%) in 2013. Across all continents, 37 states (19%) are either developing a new or revising their current youth policy, down from 56 (28%) in 2013. 31 countries have no national youth policy at the moment (16%), down from 43 (22%) in 2013. Of those, 14 are in Africa, 9 in Asia, 5 in the Americas, and 3 in Europe.
We also made most of the existing national youth policies as well as drafts for youth policies under revision available for access and download at http://www.youthpolicy.org/nationalyouthpolicies/, where we maintain the most comprehensive global overview of national youth policies.
