|World Development Report 2007 is on Youth|
|Detail:|| The World Bank's World Development Report 2007 will be entitled "Development and the Next Generation." |
The 2007 report, scheduled to be launched in September 2006, will focus on crucial capabilities and transitions in a young person's life: learning for life and work, staying healthy, working, forming families, and exercising citizenship. For each, there are opportunities and risks; for all, policies and institutions matter.
A wide range of consultations has been put in place to create a dialogue between the researchers, young people and experts from youth-serving organizations.
