Name:State of the World Population Report: The Power of 1.8 Billion: Adolescents, Youth and the Transform
Description:

The report shows that developing countries with large youth populations could see their economies soar, provided they invest heavily in young people’s education and health and protect their rights. The potential economic gains would be realized through a “demographic dividend,” which can occur when a country’s working age population is larger than the population that is dependent and younger. The report suggests that in order to maximize the dividend, countries must ensure their young working-age populations are equipped to seize opportunities for jobs and other income-earning possibilities.
