Quy made the statement at an arria-formula meeting held via videoconference on September 9 to discuss the implementation of the resolutions. The event was co-organised by the Dominican Republic, France, Indonesia, Niger, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, South Africa, Tunisia and the United States.
The Council has adopted three resolutions on youth, peace and security: Resolution 2250 on December 9, 2015, Resolution 2419 on June 6, 2018, and Resolution 2535 on July 14, 2020.
In his remark, Quy stressed member countries need to take a key responsibility in including the youth, peace and security agenda in their national policy frameworks; boosting relevant social awareness; creating opportunities for learning, employment, and healthcare for youths; and tacking conflicts at their roots.
At the international level, he supported the institutionalisation of the youth, peace and security agenda as part of the UN system, appointment of youth focal points at UN peace operations, close collaboration between the operations and their host nations, and increasing experience exchanges among UN peace missions.
Speaking at the meeting, Rosemary DiCarlo, UN Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs, said one in four youths in the world is inflicted by conflicts and violence.
She attributed the successful implementation of youth, peace and security agendas at peace missions to their leaders’ support, a common approach for the entire operation, the appointment of youth focal points in charge of the agenda, secured financial sources, and a good partnership with young people.
According to Jean-Pierre Lacroix, UN Under-Secretary-General for Peace Operations, there are 24 UN missions building their agendas, and 14 out of 22 special UN political missions appointing their youth focal points.
