The World Bank is calling on governments to boost young people's access to jobs and training to help them recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The bank's vice president, Mamta Murthi, said the potential of 1.8 billion people risked being wasted.

The BBC's Dharshini David reports.


It's the livelihoods of the young that have born the economic brunt of this crisis.

Those aged under 25 are most likely to work in hard-hit industries such as tourism, retail and hospitality.

In addition, economists think more than 1 billion have seen their training or education disrupted.

The World Bank says that so far policymakers battling against COVID have prioritized protecting the health of the elderly but now they have to intensify efforts to nurture the financial wellbeing of the young.
