Overall, young people today are better off than previous generations, but many are still severely hindered by a lack of education, poverty, health risks, unemployment and the impact of conflict. The World Youth Report 2003 provides an overview of the global situation of young people. The first ten chapters focus on the priority areas of education, employment, extreme poverty, health issues, the environment, drugs, delinquency, leisure time, the situation of girls and young women, and youth participation in decision-making as 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

Projecting progress : reaching the SDGs by 2030 : interactive storyboard

This website shows the Overseas Development Institute’s (ODI) Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) interactive story board. It provides a scorecard, based upon taking data from one target per goal and projecting forward to 2030, with each goal graded from A-F according to how near they will be to completion in 2030. The results include no ‘A’s are awarded, and 5 goals receive an ‘F’ illustrating that, unless significant changes are made, none of the SDGs will be met. The remainder of the website also features videos, images and text outlining what must happen if the world is to reverse these projections and successfully implement all 17 SDGs
