Peace & Security
Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all level
SDG Goal 16
Why Youth, Peace & Security?
Youth tend to be the victims and perpetrators of conflict. Africa’s youth bulge presents threats and opportunities to the continent. Heightened concerns of youth unemployment, limited education or no education, and little or no capacity to dialogue among others, across Africa tend to be red flags for concern for all stakeholders. The reality that the Continent’s Agenda 2063 requires peace to transform Africa into a global powerhouse is more urgent today than ever before.
Given the dynamic nature of conflicts in Africa, there is an imperative need for multi-stakeholder dialogue in interrogating the issues and identifying solutions.
