1. Recommendation:

There is a need to conduct more targeted and in-depth gender awareness- raising and sensitization on the positive roles that could be played by women and the youth in peacebuilding. More capacity building in peace and dialogue issues should be delivered to women, as well as paying more focus on strengthening women’s inclusion in decision-making processes to encourage their participation in peace building issues.
