accountable for investing in youth-driven sustainable economies. 3 Sexual,
Reproductive and Health Rights: We support young people to make positive
choices about their health. and 4 Leadership: We empower young people and
communities to prevent and lead the response to emerging crises, we make sure
that this is part of a wider approach to invest in young people to build long-
