Introduction

The Commonwealth Secretariat and Government of Uganda will convene the 9th Commonwealth Youth Ministers Meeting (9CYMM) in Kampala, Uganda on 31st July – 4th August 2017.

CYMM is held every four years and brings together Youth Ministers, senior government officials, youth representatives, youth workers and other youth sector stakeholders from across the Commonwealth.

Immediately prior to the CYMM, a Youth Leaders’ Forum and a Stakeholders Forum are convened, creating the opportunity for participants to reflect on the theme from their perspectives, and feed recommendations through to ministers.

The CYMM enables ministers to debate emerging youth development issues; take stock of current Commonwealth Secretariat and member government programmes; share good practice and identify collaborative opportunities; identify and agree pragmatic actions to strengthen youth. development; and agree on strategic actions to address the issues and challenges facing young people; and in so doing seize the opportunities in the Commonwealth in relation to the theme, ‘Resourcing and Financing Youth Development, Empowering Young People’
