Youth currently number 1.2 billion, or approximately 18 per cent of the world's population. Although they comprised 25 per cent of the working age population in 2007, youth accounted for more than 40 per cent of the world's unemployed. They are globally a growing population with increasing visibility and voice. With 62% of the youth living in Asia and 17% in Africa, the bulk of the new work youth force is emerging from the developing world and is coming from locations least equipped to provide them with the learning opportunities needed for the 21st century.
