The Juvenescence Forum at the Fifth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries deliberates on the stimulants for their enfranchisement.

The Youth Forum, which was held today within the framework of the Fifth United Nations Conference on the Least Developed Countries, discussed stimulating efforts to empower this group in about 46 countries that suffered from insufficient resources to combat epidemics and escalating debts, which led to a decline in their development progress.

They called on governments, civil society and the private sector to play a serious role in bringing about the required transformation within the least developed countries, so that the contributions made to them are meaningful to achieve the goals of sustainable development in them, stressing that bringing about this transformation must be characterized by sustainability, and for everyone, including youth, to be a part of it.
