• Develop publication policies for balanced representation of female and young issues;
• Include stories on women and young people in LG in NALAS communication materials:
newsletter, digest, website;
• Include a section of gender and youth in NALAS Knowledge Tree;
• Establish a Focal point on Gender and Youth in each NALAS member and through
them a gender and youth network.
