  • Timor-Leste National Human Development Report 2018: Planning the Opportunities for a Youthful Population
    Apr 3, 2018

    This National Human Development Report (National HDR) puts the well-being of young people at the centre of the policy agenda. Why youth? Timor-Leste has one of the youngest populations in the Asia and Pacific region, with a median age of 17.4 years. This makes TimorLeste the 15th youngest in the world, behind only Afghanistan and a group of African nations. The population below age 35 accounts for 74 percent of the total population. Hence, this report responds to the development aspirations of the youth of Timor-Leste, the drivers of the nation’s future development.
