According to UNICEF Middle East and North Africa Regional Office Annual Report 2017, the MENA region is undergoing a demographic transition with increasing numbers of children, adolescents and youth. Between 2000 and 2005, the region experienced an average population growth rate of 2.0 % per year, and the current 1.7% per year remains well above the world’s average of 1.3%. Estimations found that the numbers of children, adolescents and youth in the region will reach 271 million in 2050, while over 33 million children and youth under the age of 24 will be added to the population between 2015 and 2030. Despite this, the slowing of population growth presents a demographic window of opportunity to invest in human capital by improving access to health and education and enhancing prospects for productive employment. Countries in the region now need to capitalize on this demographic dividend as soon as possible via strategic and sustainable investments.
