The role of Gender & Youth Unit

Our Gender and Youth Team handles all matters of this area of thematic focus. They formulate strategies on mainstreaming gender and Women’s Perspectives on Security (WPS). They identify emerging WPS issues relevant to the agency’s mandates, analyse implications and recommend possible strategies.

They plan and implement operational activities related to gender and WPS work of the Agency (conflict prevention, post conflict rehabilitation, civil society support work etc). They provide technical support to gender and WPS related mediation processes.

The team is responsible for ensuring gender balance in all the agency’s activities.They liaise with the research team to organise, coordinate research on a variety of gender and mediation as well as WPS issues. They also propose policy directives and plan of action on gender and WPS issues.

Gender & Youth Unit Activities

Since the creation of the Plateau Peace Building Agency (PPBA) 5 years ago as a dedicated institutional structure for conflict prevention and peace building, the Agency has adopted a wide range of strategies to promote the ideals of sustainable peace across the state. One of the pathways the Agency seeks to deliver on its statutory mandate is through sustained research, robust coordination, systematic documentation and strategic partnership. .

Against this backdrop, staff development through training and retraining has been at the core of the Agency’s operational policies. It is in view of the foregoing that the Research Team of the Agency organized a two-day capacity building training for staff and management on ‘Promoting the ideals of sustainable peace through research, robust coordination and strategic partnership’ on the 28th & 29th April, 2021. The objective of the training was to further strengthen staff capacity to effectively deliver on the Agency’s statutory mandate of conflict prevention and peace building. The training was one among a series of ongoing staff capacity building activities under the GIZ Peacecore project, which also aligns with the Agency’s 5-Year Strategic Plan Document
