The Fourth Conference of the African Union Ministers in Charge of Youth was held on September 13, 2012. The presentation and a summary of remarks are available for download below. These documents answer four main questions:

  1. Is money spent specifically on youth programs the best way to spend money that benefits youth?
  2. When we spend money on youth, is that money managed in a transparent manner to ensure that it is spent well?
  3. Has government produced plans and targets that demonstrate that it understands the nature of the problem and has a roadmap for solving it?
  4.  Are the youth involved in the design of youth programs and in monitoring their implementation, including the implementation of the budget for these programs?
