Building Youth Conflict resilience in the Horn of Africa, Project Launch and Leaders meeting

Nairobi Peace Initiative Africa, in partnership with The Interchurch Corporation for Development Cooperation (ICCO) and The Christian Council of Tanzania (CCT), convened a meeting of youth leaders on 26th - 30th August, 2015 in Arusha, Tanzania. The attending participants were youth leaders from eight (8) youth groups within Kenya, Tanzania and South Sudan, a third being women and another third involving ex-combatants or former associated violent group members. The main goal of this meeting was to carry out and document one economic, peace and conflict situational (national and regional) analysis on status, policies, gaps and potentials of ex-combatants and their role in conflict relapses.

 

The main outcome of this meeting will be the development of a curriculum, by December 2015, that will enhance the creation of awareness, among youth, within the Horn of Africa, on how entrepreneurship can contribute to the prevention of conflict relapses.  In consensus, the youth leaders present at this meeting agreed on the fact that the youth have a major role to play in the reconciliation and cultivation of sustainable peace within the Horn of African and one of the avenues that can be used to actualize this would be to cultivate and enhance entrepreneurial skills among the youth populations.

As a result of the meeting, a major recommendation from the CCT and EAC representatives present as well as the youth leaders was the formation of women and youth desks within national and regional mechanisms with clear and goal-oriented responsibilities and roles, especially in terms of acting as early warning mechanism of conflict relapse within the region.
