The MENA Adolescent and Youth Hub is a microsite that falls under No Lost Generation’s third pillar – Adolescents and Youth. Co-led by the UN:NGO group, the Hub is a one-stop-shop of evidence and tools related to young people in the region. It also includes a Regional Adolescent and Youth Advisory Majlis, an online platform where young people can actively participate in all stages of the regional development and humanitarian agenda life cycle, from planning and production to advocacy and action.
The No Lost Generation initiative is a concerted effort by donors, UN agencies, NGOs and governments to ensure that children and young people affected by the crises in Syria and Iraq have access to education, protection and opportunities to engage positively in their community and society. It is co-led by UNICEF, Mercy Corps, Save the Children and World Vision and focuses on programming and advocacy within three pillars: Education, Child Protection and Adolescents & Youth – and covers Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq, and Egypt.
