Mapping a Sector: Bridging the Evidence Gap on Youth-Driven Peacebuilding

In December 2015, the United Nations Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace and Security. This Resolution is the first to recognize the important and positive role young women and men play in the maintenance and promotion of international peace and security. Resolution 2250 requests the Secretary-General “to carry out a Progress Study on the youth’s positive contribution to peace processes and conflict resolution, in order to recommend effective responses at local, national, regional and international levels”, and to present the results of the Study to Member States of the United Nations.

This report was developed as a contribution to the Progress Study on Youth, Peace and Security, which is co-led by by UNFPA and the Peacebuilding Support Office.
