Organization of a worshop on the theme "Promoting development of national youth policies and supporting youth civic engagement and participation in socio-political, community and peace-building processes in West Africa – Sahel".

This intervention follows the three constituent pillars of UNESCO's Global Strategy for Youth and essentially aims to support the country's efforts to review the National Youth Policy (NPC), with the participation of youth (axis 1).

It will thus contribute to

- capacity building of youth and youth organizations (axis 2), and

- civic engagement of young people to empower them to be agents of peace in their communities, to help them moving successfully from school to the labour market, and to prevent violence (axis 3).
