Children and youth are agents of change, with a critical role to play in achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Moreover, youth development is critical to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda and other development frameworks. In this context, the General Assembly requested United Nations entities most recently in its resolution 72/146 to continue their coordination towards a more coherent, comprehensive and integrated approach to youth development, and called upon them to support national, regional and international efforts in addressing challenges hindering youth development. In recent years two notable system-wide products pertaining to youth development have been endorsed by the United Nations Chief Executives Board for Coordination (CEB): in 2015, the strategy for the Global Initiative on Decent Jobs for Youth, a UN system-wide effort to promote youth employment worldwide; and in 2013, a System-wide Action Plan on Youth (Youth-SWAP), guided by the World Programme of Action for Youth.
