The current initiative proposes to enhance the participation of young women in the dialogue with local authorities via the existing Community Security Working Groups, Gender Coordination Councils and Gender Responsive Budgeting Working Groups to support age- and genderresponsive WPS local policies and programming, aiming to address protection of young women and discrimination they face, but also to emphasize the positive and transformative role young women can play in building sustainable peace. These dialogues will bring to the table of discussions the particular needs, priorities and interests of young women in the context of implementation of the WPS agenda at the local level (e.g. sexual harassment which affects young women disproportionately), considering intersectionality, which is vital to inclusivity and diversity of participation.
Grass root young women in target communities have increased awareness of the UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security in conjunction with Youth, Peace and Security (YPS) agenda set forth in UNSCR 2250 (2015) and are equipped with advocacy and leadership skills.
The inter- and intra- generational dialogues on Women, Peace and Security in target communities is enhanced.
Young women activists from target communities have enhanced capacities to promote the Women, Peace and Security agenda through new media activism.
The operationalization of the local Women, Peace and Security Agenda in target communities is accelerated through dialogue meetings of young women activists and local authorities.
The budget range for this proposal should be 200,000 USD – 210,000 USD (Budget for activities to be implemented in 2021: up to 105,000 USD; Budget for activities to be implemented in 2022: up to 105,000 USD)
