An online kick-off meeting of the local unit of the UN program and Turkmenistan's leadership to develop the direction of engaging the younger generation in mitigating the threats to human health posed by the global pandemic COVID-19 was held.
The program, which has been launched for a year and a half, is designed to enhance the skills of civil servants for the successful implementation of a security-sensitive Socioeconomic Response Plan. In addition, the target audience is the youth of Lebap and Dashoguz, who are expected to become agents of positive change in their local communities.
It is planned to form a Youth Reference Association, which, along with local administrations, will develop and implement initiatives aimed at achieving the SDGs.
UNFPA and the Ministry of Sports and Youth Policy are responsible for implementing the program.
