Statement by Dr. Babatunde Osotimehin Under-Secretary-General and Executive Director of UNFPA

Today, we celebrate the world’s 1.8 billion young people. And we pause to consider that 43 per cent of the world’s population is under the age of 25—a figure that rises to 60 per cent in the least developed countries. It is the vision of UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, to deliver a world where the potential of each of these individuals is fulfilled.
