The Youth4Peace Global Knowledge Portal, launched in October 2016, supports the implementation of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2250 (2015) on Youth, Peace and Security and serves the needs of young peacebuilders, decision-makers, researchers, development practitioners and other stakeholders, by providing a one-stop-shop for generating, accessing and sharing knowledge to promote and support young people’s participation in peacebuilding.

A first-of-its-kind global platform on youth and peacebuilding, is a new multi-stakeholder initiative between the United Nations (PBSO, UNDP's Youth Global Programme for Sustainable Development and Peace | Youth-GPS), civil society (SfCG) and youth-led organisations (UNOY), working together through the Working Group on Youth & Peacebuilding. The portal is hosted by UNDP Youth-GPS with support from the Oslo Governance Centre.
