This report presents and discusses the findings from the final evaluation conducted by AP of the “Strengthening Young Women’s Participation in Local and National Peace Processes in South Sudan” project (January 2020-September 2021), which was founded by the United Nations Peacebuilding Fund (UNPF) and implemented by Search for Common Ground (Search) South Sudan, in partnership with Ana-Taban, Crown the Woman (CTW), National Women’s Empowerment & Rehabilitation Organization (NWERO), Catholic Radio Network (CRN), and Eye Radio.

The project aimed to equip and empower young South Sudanese women with knowledge, skills and opportunities to contribute to the peace process at the local and national level, reinforce their collective power, and challenge the social stereotypes and barriers that hinder their equal participation.
