Annual Report 2020 by the President of ICYF
We are excited to release the Annual Report 2020 by the President of ICYF. The year 2020 is over and the word “challenging” would be underestimating what this year really was. As hard as it may have been, with the odds not in our favor, we are more than happy to say that we pushed through the agony to realize our goals and missions that we had set to achieve at the beginning of the year. We carried out several activities both online and on the ground and made sure that the youth whom we live to serve were not left out in the cold.
That is why we have captured the events and milestones that defined our year so we can look back at the great work we have achieved together to motivate us to do more.

The State of Youth in the OIC Member States 2020 report has been prepared by SESRIC in cooperation with the Islamic Cooperation Youth Forum (ICYF) as mandated by the 4th Session of the Islamic Conference of Youth and Sports Ministers, held in Baku in April 2018.

State of Youth in OIC Member States Report 2017
This report, which has been prepared by SESRIC in cooperation with ICYF-DC as mandated by the Third Session of the Islamic Conference of Youth and Sports Ministers, held in Istanbul in October 2016, underlines that performance and ability of youth to act as agents of cultural and economic sustainability will largely depend on how well policymakers today can address ongoing and upcoming challenges. In this regard, the report examines and evaluates the challenges faced by youth in various areas such as economy, policy, education, health and culture as well as suggesting actionable insights for policy makers. In other words, the Report not only identifies the key challenges faced by youth but also provides broad policy solutions on youth related issues to be considered by policy makers in OIC Member States.
Finally, the report develops and presents a Youth Policy Score Indicator for OIC Countries to evaluate how well Member States are dealing with issues related to youth and what can and should be done. This indicator can serve as a practical tool that would help promote intra-OIC cooperation with its end goal being empowerment of youth in each Member State.
The report was circulated during the Fourth Session of the Islamic Conference of Youth and Sports Ministers (ICYSM) that took place on 17-19 April 2018, in Baku, Republic of Azerbaijan.
