The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), in collaboration with the Population Council, convened a three-day workshop May 1–3, 2002, at the Population Council’s headquarters in New York. The workshop provided an opportunity to review research and programs in the area of adolescent reproductive health and development (the “first generation”) and to think critically about key lessons learned from this work as we move forward into the “second generation” of work with this important population. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions from that workshop. Key points are gathered into two clusters: those that underscore principles of program planning, design, and evaluation, and those that highlight neglected subjects or subgroups on the adolescent agenda. Where possible, reference is made to the sections of the report as well as the background paper where more detailed descriptions may be found.
