UN Youth Advisory Panel
The UN Youth Advisory Panel (UNYAP) is the youth advisory body of the UN Country Team (UNCT) in Cambodia. The panel is a platform for young people to represent the voices of their peers in Cambodia on the design of youth-friendly policies, strategies and programmes aimed at addressing adolescent and youth issues in Cambodia.
It also provides the opportunity for young people to increase their understanding of the role of the UN, UN's development priorities in Cambodia as well as youth development as a whole in Cambodia. In addition, their capacity development will be supported by the UN to better their role as advocates for young people.
UNYAP Cambodia is formed by representatives from 16 organisations who work with young people, work for young people, or are composed of young people. UNYAP meets monthly with various youth focal points from UN agencies for discussion, training or preparation for upcoming events and presentations.
