Commonwealth Global Youth Development Index Special Newscast

Ministers, government representatives, youth leaders and experts join a special 45 minute newscast television programme, presented by Caribbean journalist Garfield Burford and designed to unveil and analyse key findings on youth development performance in 181 countries.

This is the third edition of the Global Youth Development Index, which measures the state of health and wellbeing, education, employment, equality and inclusion, political participation, and security for more than 1.8 billion young people around the world.

Developed by the Commonwealth Secretariat, the Youth Development Index informs policymakers about young people’s needs and opportunities while indicating areas for success as well as where attention and investment are needed. It also acts as a data advocacy tool, highlighting the importance of gathering statistics on key youth indicators to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
