Guiding Principles on Young People’s Participation in Peacebuilding
These define nine overarching principles to ensure meaningful involvement of young people in building peace and helped shift policy discussions towards the recognition of young people’s role for building peace.
The PBF Gender and Youth Promotion Initiative #GYPI
The United Nations Secretary-General’s Peacebuilding Fund’s (PBF) Gender and Youth Promotion Initiative #GYPI is an expression of the Fund’s commitment to inclusive peacebuilding. It supports the empowerment of women and the advancement of gender equality and recognizes the role of young people as central to the relevance and effectiveness of PBF’s overall peacebuilding portfolio.
Through the initiative the PBF seeks to increase its impact and advance the implementation of the Secretary General’s Seven-Point Action Plan on Gender-Responsive Peacebuilding and Security Council resolutions on Women, Peace and Security, as well as Security Council resolution 2250 (2015) on Youth, Peace and Security.
