Enhancing youth participation in peacebuilding

The UN Development Programme and International Labor Organization (ILO), in partnership with the Government of Solomon Islands, have transferred 20 youth caucuses from the grassroots at the community level to the Solomon Islands National Youth Congress.

These youth caucuses have now become an integral part of the National Youth Congress and will function under its provincial branches, the Provincial Youth Councils.

With the aim to empower youth, prevent conflict and sustain peace at community and provincial levels, back in 2019, UNDP has joined forces with the Government to establish and operationalize more than 20 youth caucuses in three target provinces of Solomon Islands including Guadalcanal, Western and Malaita provinces.
