Engaging young people in Asia and the Pacific’s water and sanitation management

This report shows why encouraging young people to discover and drive solutions for Asia and the Pacific’s water sector can help unlock innovative fresh approaches, promote ownership, and ensure water security is inclusive and resilient. One quarter of the region's population is under twenty-five years old. This report presents case studies to demonstrate the benefits of engaging young people in the design, delivery and evaluation of water supply and sanitation projects. In the face of increasingly complex water sector challenges, driven by factors such as climate change and rapid urbanization, young people can provide new and innovative perspectives. The publication outlines practical ways in which development practitioners in the water sector can involve young people in their work.
