Yes to Youth Goal: panel debate

Should there be a standalone Youth Goal in the post-2015 development framework?

  • Katherine Ellis, Director of Youth, Commonwealth Secretariat
  • Ahmed Adamu, Chairperson, Commonwealth Youth Council
  • Alain Sibenaler, UNFPA Representative in Sri Lanka
  • Hannah Smith, Representative of Restless Development
  • Nilanthi Sugathadasa, Additional Secretary (Youth Development) Ministry of Youth Affairs & Skills Development, Government of Sri Lanka
