Abstract

This study was conceptualised with the belief that an assessment of what young people consider to be the effects of these policies, an objective analysis of the strategies or action plans and their outcomes will provide empirical evidence of the extent to which governments have implemented the AYC. Paying attention to this transition entails understanding how the policy environment could influence the current youth development agenda as envisaged under the AU Agenda 2063 aspirations and the UN Agenda 2030 on SDGs.
