10th IsDB Youth Development Forum- 2022, Building Youth Resilience: Transition to the Green Economy and Beyond

Webinar (01:00 PM – 02:30 PM KSA Time)


The Youth Development Forum (YDF) is a flagship annual standing event on the sideline to the Islamic Development Bank Group Annual Meeting. It brings together influential thinkers, policymakers, international development policy experts, and most importantly, youth delegates to address, discuss and debate critical issues of relevance to young women and men around the globe. This year celebrates the Bank's 10th Youth Development Forum. The topic for this YDF is Building Youth Resilience: Transition to Green Economy and Beyond which expands the scope of youth economic empowerment and explores the interdependent areas of youth, economic growth, climate change, and environmental issues more broadly. The theme of this year's Forum is in line with the objectives of the Bank’s new strategic priorities for 2022-2025, namely, boosting recovery and driving green economic growth.
