Abstract
The objective of this fast brief, presented in two parts, is to illustrate several concrete examples from the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), Europe and Central Asia (ECA) and Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) regions of youth-focused Analytical and Advisory Activities (AAA), investment lending, and grant-funded engagements, which can inform the growing work program in the region. As highlighted in the policy note youth an undervalued asset: towards a new agenda in the MENA young people are becoming an increasing priority for MENA countries. If well utilized, the current youth bulge represents a demographic gift leading to investment opportunities as large segments of populations enter their productive peak years. However, if investments fail to be made or do not reach young people, the youth bulge may well turn into a drain on growth and society.
