UN launches International Year of Youth
The United Nations in Nepallaunched International Year of Youth in collaboration withthe Ministry of Youth and Sport.Addressing the programme, Prime Minister MadhavKumar Nepal said the UN initiatives to mark the year of youth world pave the way for the information of policiesand plans to clatter to the youth’s needs.“The government is working to prepare a youth-friendlybudget to respond to the problems of the youth”, saidNepal.Robert Piper, UN Resident and HumanitarianCoordinator for Nepal, expressed concern that too much‘harvesting’ of youth energy and talent is being done bypolitical parties. He said, ”The youth sector is riven withpolitics. In schools and campuses youths are being usedas the ‘shock-troops’ of political conflict, too often leadingto violent confrontation.”. Adding, “Violence has no placein youth politics and if by 20 or even 18, party-affiliationhas became a way of life— and livelihood—parties riskcreating levels of dependence and expectations they willstruggle to sustain for the decades ahead.” He calledupon all to see less youth at the barricades and moreyouth in the central committees and policy-makingbodies of the parties. Mr. Piper also said that youngwomen in Nepal face unprecedented challenges rangingfrom poor access to services to sexual exploitation andgender-based violence. This group deserves specialattention. “If nothing else, because investing in youngwoman makes good sense. If you educated a girl, youeducate a family—the benefits from investing in youngwomen will be reaped from generations to come.” headded.The theme fro the internal youth year is ’Dialogue andMutual Understanding”. The year aims to encouragedialogue and understanding across generation andpromote the ideals of peace, respect for human rightsand freedoms, and solidarity. The them encouragesyoung people to dedicate themselves to fosteringprogress, including the attainment of the UN MillenniumDevelopment Goals by 2015.
