The Caribbean Youth Development Conference (CYDC), having been convened in Kingston, Jamaica by the 50/50 Youth Cluster of the Sir Arthur Lewis Institute of Social and Economic Studies (SALISES) at the University of the West Indies (UWI), in partnership with the Caribbean Regional Youth Council (CRYC), and with the support of national, regional and international development agencies, has reached agreement among its delegates, representing youth development stakeholders across the Caribbean, on directions for youth inclusion in sustainable development in the Caribbean, Post 2015.

The CYDC has now affirmed the commitment of stakeholders to, individually and collectively, advance an evidence-based, youth participatory, transparent, professionalized, sectorally-integrated, regionally-inclusive and collaborative framework for Caribbean youth development.
