Reports by the Secretary-General on Youth, Peace and Security
In March 2020, the report of the United Nations Secretary-General on youth, peace and security was released and is the first of its kind since the Security Council adopted resolution 2250(2015), in which the essential role of young people in preventing and resolving conflicts and in sustaining peace was recognized. The report was submitted pursuant to resolution 2419(2018), in which the Security Council requested a report on the implementation of resolutions 2419(2018) and 2250(2015).
Security Council resolution 2535(2020) mandated the Secretary-General to submit a biennial report to the Security Council on the implementation of resolutions 2250(2015), 2419(2018) and 2535(2020) on youth, peace and security.
