    Why Qatar’s 3rd HDR Focuses on Youth

    • During period to QNV 2030, youth in 2010 will grow into young adults, embarking on careers or pursuing higher and advanced education opportunities

    Tomorrow’s parents, workers & leaders

    Youth is a fast growing group

    • An expanding share of Qatar’s population

    • Population aged 15-24 grew by 15 percent per annum from 2004 to 2010

    • Youth component in population

      18% of total population

    YOUTH (persons aged 15-24)

    Need specific youth policy focus

    • Vulnerable and experimental period - childhood dependency to independent adulthood – need guidance

    Youth is a period of transition

    • Essential to expand opportunities and choices through investments in their education, health, employment, sports and leisure
