Investing in adolescents’ rights has the potential to deliver a triple dividend – improving their well-being now, enhancing their future life chances, and boosting outcomes for the next generation of children. Adolescence is a critical window of opportunity but also a challenging period involving rapidly changing needs and capacities – it is a time when age and gender discrimination can become more acute. This briefing makes the case for prioritising adolescent health and nutrition, sets out recommendations for implementing a gender-transformative, adolescent-responsive approach, and provides model commitments for advocates, governments, and donors.
