The past year has seen the Revitalized Agreement on the Resolution of the Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS) result in a notable decrease in violence, yet most of the core issues driving the conflict remain unresolved. Efforts are largely focused on the elite, political level, to the detriment of citizen participation, ownership, and implementation of key elements of the peace process. Where civilian input is included, it is largely limited to older men with some minimal input from youth and women, largely drawn from male youth or older women, leaving young women and their concerns, interests, and aspirations completely excluded from the process. Recognizing the fragility of the agreement and the immense national and international pressure on its success, this project seizes on the unique contributions that young women can make to durable decisions around peace and security. Through a series of trainings, community outreach, and networking activities, combined with national-level media programming, this project will catalyze increased momentum for peace and establish the collective agency of young women, both at the national and local levels, ultimately both promoting the underlying peacebuilding principles of the R-ARCSS and solidifying their vested interest in upholding peace in the country. Existing programming supporting the R-ARCSS either focuses on the national or grassroots level, limiting progress to the confines of silos; this project innovatively aims to create feedback loops and structures connecting these two elements, thus increasing the transparency of the process and fostering a greater sense of ownership nationwide, while linking experiences, approaches and lessons learned into the global community working on effective and inclusive peacebuilding practices.
