The government has decided to launch National Youth Development Index Survey to gauge real development needs of youth in different areas of the country.
According to details that the decision was taken at a meeting between Special Assistant to the Prime Minister on Youth Affairs Muhammad Usman Dar and Minister for Planning Makhdum Khusro Bakhtyar in Islamabad.
National Youth Development Index Survey would be a first-ever district-level national survey to capture data on youth development.
It would not only help in targeted interventions for the socio-economic development of youth but would also promote a culture of spending on youth development among the provinces.
It was also agreed that government would work on scaling up the said programme to accommodate more young development fellows through it annually.
