our developmental priorities
Climate & Environmental Action
A sustainable future demands actions to address several environmental issues. The young generation is both responsible and recipients of greater impacts of climate change and environmental choices.

Combating poverty and hunger is prerequisite to uplifting the quality of lives of the youth, including the development of their potentials to create a greater contribution to development.
Decent Jobs and Sustainable Livelihood
While education harnesses the knowledge and skills of the youth, opportunities of employment and sustainable livelihood are essential to put the youth’s potentials into practice.
Health and Social Welfare
Ensuring the better health and social welfare of the country’s citizens is not only a crucial purpose but also a key component of national development.
Peace in Diversity
Peacebuilding is among the strong foundations of nation-building.
