The Adolescents and Youth Report provides a comprehensive overview of the situation of young people in West and Central Africa today. It gives a detailed data and narrative analysis of the sexual and reproductive health, education, employment, social protection, gender issues, and  emergency challenges that young people face in this region. The Report is meant to guide policy makers, programme implementers, young people and other key stakeholders to develop multisectoral policies and programmes that respond to the needs of young people. UNFPA urges government partners, UN agencies, youth groups and CSOs to use the Report's findings and recommendations to take actions and develop evidence-based policies and programmes that respond to the needs of young people.
