This publication highlights the leadership journeys of UNDP’s Asian Young Leaders in Governance (AYLG) Leadership Fellows. The AYLG initiative was conceptualized by UNDP to enhance the leadership capacity of young people working in areas of governance.
Recognizing the potential of young people, AYLG sought to mobilize a community
of young leaders as agents of change through a custom designed leadership
course. Launched in 2005, AYLG has created a critical mass of young leaders in the
region who have undertaken the course.
In keeping with the spirit of leadership, as one of influencing change in ourselves,
in our organizations and in our communities, this publication steps back from
the notion of leadership being tied to positions or ranks of authority, and brings
to you the success stories of some of our exceptional Leadership Fellows. Several
Fellows have since graduating from this course, risen to high ranks in government,
academia and the NGO sector. Here we share the highlights of their success
and the challenges they have faced in their leadership journey.
We trust that you will find inspiration in their stories and agree with us that championing
and mobilizing young leaders is important for social change.
Finally, I would like to recognize the inspiration provided by four regional programmes
– Capacity2015 Asia, Asia Regional Governance Programme, Regional
Indigenous Peoples’ Programme, and the Asia Pacific Gender Mainstreaming
Programme – in conceiving and supporting the programme starting in 2005,
the financial support provided by the UN Democracy Fund (UNDEF) in 2007
and 2008, and the support of UNDP Country Offices in making this innovative
initiative a success.
