The Workshop on Evidence-based Policies on Youth Development in Asia, and the Workshop on Promoting the Sustainability of the Youth Policy Toolbox in Asia-Pacific were held in Bangkok at the UNCC from 29 May to 1 June 2017. These workshops were organized by the ESCAP and DESA, and in partnership with the Commonwealth and several United Nations entities, including UNDP, UNESCO, UNFPA and ILO. The workshops jointly presented a forum for international exchange of experiences and substantive knowledge on youth policies, mainstreaming youth in sectoral policies and applying youth development indicators. The workshops resulted in strengthening the capacity of participants to formulate, implement, monitor and review policies on youth at global, regional, national and local levels, using various indicators and methodologies conducive to youth participation, including by means of the ESCAP Youth Policy Toolbox.
