Youth Forum: Miragoane, Nippes Department

From February 2017, the Copenhagen Consensus Center began hosting regional Youth Forums across Haiti. 

These Youth Forums are a platform created by Haiti Priorise to enable young people from 18-30 years old to access the new research, discuss and debate their views, and present their perspective on development priorities for Haiti.

In May, a national Youth Forum will be held, to consider all of the research from the project.

With approximately 60% of the country under the age of 30, the youth are a very important group. Haiti Priorise is especially concerned to ensure that young women are given a voice in the discussion about priorities.

The second Youth Forum took place in Miragoane, Nippes Department .  A total of 55 of young Haitians took part, engaging in discussion and debate about the top priorities for their region and for Haiti.
