Developing countries which invest in better education, healthcare, and job 
training for their record numbers of young people between the ages of 12 
and 24 years of age, could produce surging economic growth and sharply 
reduced poverty, according to a new World Bank report launched at the 
Bank's Annual Meetings in Singapore.

With 1.3 billion young people now living in the developing world-the 
largest-ever youth group in history-the report says there has never been a 
better time to invest in youth because they are healthier and better 
educated than previous generations, and they will join the workforce with 
fewer dependents because of changing demographics.

However, failure to seize this opportunity to train them more effectively 
for the workplace, and to be active citizens, could lead to widespread 
disillusionment and social tensions.

great opportunities, but also risks," says Franois Bourguignon, the World 
Bank's Chief Economist and Senior Vice President for Development 
Economics. 
 
"The opportunities are great, as many countries will have a larger, more 
skilled labor force and fewer dependents. But these young people must be 
well-prepared in order to create and find good jobs." 
 
 

The report says that young people make up nearly half of the ranks of the 
world's unemployed, and, for example, that the Middle East and North 
Africa region alone must create 100 million jobs by 2020 in order to 
stabilize its employment situation. Moreover, surveys of young people in 
East Asia and Eastern Europe and Central Asia-carried out as research for 
the report-indicate that access to jobs, along with physical security, is 
their biggest concern. 
Far too many young people--some 130 million 15-24
