The major focus of the YPDP programme is to strengthen local and national youth networks and to increase youth engagement in the national process for sustainable development. This program emphasizes on achieving sustainable, positive youth outcomes in health including reproductive health and rights, education, civic and economic empowerment.

Through YDPD, Restless Development in collaboration with youth initiative conducted Youth Scorecard Survey in 5 districts (Achham, Bajura, Bajhang, Dadeldhura and Baitadi). With 5 domains (Shared Values; Organizational Capacity; Selection, Recruitment, Sustaining Youth Participation; Responsibility and Roles of all Involved and Youth-focus Programming), the survey using scorecard was done to monitor and share valuable information to youth for strengthening their capacity and to provide opportunity to participate in decision-making at local level. Additionally, for the first time, Restless Development, in collaboration with 6 UN agencies, 2 government agencies and 11 youth organization, organized a Futsal tournament to commemorate the International Youth Day and to exhibit the importance of sustainable production and consumption.
