The Program works in five main areas that include

4) working with media institution and media professionals to improved advocacy and public awareness.
Through the Social Cohesion, UNDP is committed to developing national competencies for peace and social cohesion. This translates into continued support and continued capacity-development of Women’s Groups, Youth Groups and CBOs by strengthening their knowledge and skills for dialogue facilitation and mediation, group-specific needs in conflict, community outreach, consultations, networking and advocacy.
In 2020 UNDP Social Cohesion Programme has established 4 Youth Groups and 3 Women Groups. The aim of these groups is to empower these crucial segments of the community and strengthening their position in the communities that they serve as important factor to the community peace and coexistence. During COVID-19 these groups proved to be effective mechanism in responding to the pandemic and their contribution to minimize socio-economic impact. During 2020, the youth and women groups implemented 27 community-based initiatives. Targeting over 11,000 beneficiaries. The initiatives among other things focused on youth and women empowerment, responding to COVID-19 implications, and promoting for peace and social cohesion.
UNDP will continue supporting through capacity building, networking and provision of funding to implement initiatives that aims at linking excluded groups to decision-makers; outreaching vulnerable and ‘at-risk’ groups; dialogue, exchange, cultural, sports and other joint activities between different groups; positive counter-narratives to radicalism and violent extremism etc. UNDP will bring these groups together, in-person and online, to share experiences and feedback, using these opportunities to promote trust-building, networking and collaborative actions across identity and geographic divides.
