The discussion's objective is to establish a holistic understanding of how the needs of youth and their expectations have changed, and how governments can take proactive measures to address them. 

     

    T09P09 - Innovation in Governance: luxury or necessity

     

    While governments globally face new challenges, innovation in governance gives hope to addressing external challenges & risks.
