Moroccan civil society actor Karima Rhanem took part  on September 7-8, 2014 in Amman, Jordan in UNDP’s second youth consultative group. UNDP is currently preparing the upcoming Arab Human Development Report 2015 which will address the issues of youth in the Arab region. In this regard, a youth consultative group has been formed, aiming to promote genuine youth-led reflections on development choices in the Arab region, through meaningfully consulting young people to bring their voices to policy-makers.
