Inclusive peace requires a "bottom-to-top" approach, a Nigerian peace activist said on the margins of a UN high-level dialogue on sustaining peace for all.

Joy Onyesoh, President of the International League for Peace and Freedom, helps train and build the capacity of women in local communities to prevent conflict and promote peace.

She also works in north-eastern Nigeria, where Boko Haram terrorists have carried out vicious and indiscriminate attacks against civilians in the area.

Ms Onyesoh shared with Jocelyne Sambira the strategies women are using to keep their communities safe and what her organization is doing to help.
