India's National Youth Policy encourages their full participation and engagement at all levels of governance. They are driven, agile and can influence behaviour change at the grassroots level. This briefing note is a synthesis of an expert panel discussion on the role of youth in sanitation, which took place in New Delhi, India, on 26 April 2019.
