UNICEF supports the Palestinian Youth Association for Leadership and Rights Activation (PYALARA) peer-to-peer psychosocial project in Beit Dukko, occupied Palestinian territory (OPT) village near Jerusalem.

The Map of Programmes for Adolescent Participation During Conflict and Post-Conflict Situations is an information sharing tool that documents the participation of adolescents in community development and peace-building activities during conflict and post-conflict situations.  The Map represents the work of a broad spectrum of partners, including NGO’s, UN agencies, governments, community leaders, teachers, parents and most importantly, young people.  Also included in the Map is a list of youth groups and networks to engage young people in issues related to adolescent participation during conflict and post-conflict situations world-wide.

In March 2003, in preparing a programme for Women's Day, the Troc bureau in Shkodra, northern Albania, interviewed women and girls about their hopes for the future.

The map is intended to encourage networking, information sharing and collaboration among colleagues working with adolescents in war-affected countries, and to generate new activities promoting young people's participation.  In addition to serving as an information-sharing tool, the Map will inform and assist the development of 'good practices' by providing examples of successful programmes that may serve as a role model for replication in other conflict situations.
