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.

Map of Programmes for Adolescent Participation During Conflict and Post-Conflict Situations
|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.
