Prime Minister’s Youth Programme to Launch National Youth Development Index (NYDI)
For the first time in the history of Pakistan, our Government is working on National Youth Development Index (NYDI) to introduce a culture of youth development in the country under the aegis of National Youth Development Programme (NYDP),” said Mr. Muhammad Usman Dar, Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Youth Affairs. He was chairing a meeting with a delegation led by Secretary Statistics Division and a team from UNDP to explore a way forward in this regard. It was agreed in the meeting that a tehsil-level national youth development survey would be conducted to capture data on youth education, health, employment, engagement and wellbeing.
Mr. Muhammad Usman Dar added, “The launch of National Youth Development Index (NYDI) would be a revolutionary step for the socio-economic development of youth, as it would gauge level of youth development not only at provincial/regional level but also at the district and tehsil levels.”
