Prioritizing Youth Population in LDCs
May 2nd 2012

Date: 2nd May 2012

Reacting to various population and development problems faced by LDC , Mr. Gyan Chandra Acharya, Nepal's  permanent representative and ambassador to UN has called upon development partners to provide financial and technical assistance to support the policies and program of Least Developed Countries.

Mr. Acharya while addressing the forty- fifth session of Commission on Population and Development in New York specifically stressed on providing economic opportunity, formal and non formal education for much younger portion of the population.

Mr. Acharya is optimistic that the upcoming UN Conference on Sustainable Development to be held in June this year, in Rio, Brazil will take important step in addressing the challenges related to population dynamics in LDC's.

He believes that sustainable development and poverty alleviation should prioritize the challenges and problems faced by the adolescences and youth. It is important to address these problems because youth are the future of a country and development can be sustainable only if youth are capable.

Mr. Acharya further pointed out the poor health situation in LDC by stating that maternal, child mortality and fertility rate are very high in LDC's.  Similarly the proportions of youth population in these countries are also very high.

Therefore to address these problems Mr. Acharya called for a stronger and targeted global cooperation from all the development partners as he concluded that "we must make sure that there is supportive relationship between the population growth and economic development by promoting the potentials of the LDC population through their overall development. We need a stronger and targeted global cooperation and support particularly when we look at the challenges and the capacity constraints of the LDCs".
