Youth and the City: Lessons from the 13 innovative projects funded by the cities alliance catalytic fund and the UN-Habitat Youth Fund –

This report is an output of a learning and exchange platform held in Johannesburg, South Africa involving youth-led organizations from different countries and regions. Through the projects’ case studies and practices presented, the report extracts lessons learnt and provides key recommendations for policy and practice.

Among the key messages within this report is to integrate youth into existing policy platforms and support their participation; as well as looking at youth as problem solvers rather than as the problem itself.

This report looks deeper into whether cities are capable of responding appropriately to ongoing challenges and providing opportunities for youth development.
