Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) hosted a panel discussion with distinguished West African experts on the implementation of Resolution 2250. Precious Akanonu was a panelist at this event which provided a platform for participants to share their insights, research focus, and country situations.
While Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace, and Security agenda, which held in 2015, was a milestone, there needs to be more effort to fully translate its provisions into practice. The recently published progress study on youth’s positive contributions to peace processes and conflict resolution offers important recommendations and tangible responses at local, national, regional and international levels.
This event featured various discussions on this issues; participants also held talks with key experts working on the Youth, Peace, and Security agenda in the UN community.
The event held in New York, from June 10th -13th, 2018.
