World Youth Report 2003: The global situation of young people
Detail: The World Youth Report 2003 provides an overview of the global situation of young people. The first 10 chapters focus on the priority areas identified by the World Programme of Action for Youth (WPAY) , adopted by the General Assembly in 1995. The remaining five chapters address some of the newer issues that were later identified as additional priorities for youth and were adopted by the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in 2003.

The UN Programme for Youth has also created "Making Commitments Matter: A toolkit for young people to evaluate national youth policy", a resource that enables young people to evaluate action on the fifteen priority areas for themselves.
