The National Consultations on YPS agenda in Zimbabwe seeks to facilitate the recognition of young people’s roles as leaders, partners and beneficiaries in peace and security. The National Consultations will also provide an opportunity for participants describing their peacebuilding work and the partnerships and relationships they have built as a result of their work, including some of their challenges they face. It is envisaged that national consultations will contribute towards the generation of new knowledge on youth participation in peacebuilding, conflict prevention, management, resolution, and transformation efforts. This will facilitate the recognition and appreciation of efforts of young Zimbabwe in peace and security processes.

Moreover, the consultations will particularly help shape the roadmap to advance the YPS agenda in Zimbabwe. Furthermore, the consultations will focus on identification of good practices, recommendations and strengths which would be critical in the development of a Roadmap on Actions and Recommendations to advance the YPS agenda in Zimbabwe. The Roadmap on the YPS agenda will include strategic objectives and outcomes, which will be aligned to the pillars enshrined in the UNSCR 2250.
