The UN Peacebuilding Fund

Welcome back.

I wanted to share with you an interesting institutionalized funding mechanism to assist on special missions and occasions.

The United Nations Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) is currently supporting more than two hundred projects in 27 countries by delivering fast, flexible and relevant funding. Countries on the agenda of the Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) receive funding. Countries that are not on the PBC agenda may also receive funding, following a declaration of eligibility by the Secretary-General.
The PBF allocates money through two funding facilities, the Immediate Response Facility (IRF) and the Peacebuilding Recovery Facility (PRF). Both facilities fund initiatives that respond to one or more of the following four criteria:
Respond to imminent threats to the peace process and initiatives that support peace agreements and political dialogue
Build or strengthen national capacities to promote coexistence and peaceful resolution of conflict
Stimulate economic revitalization to general peace dividends
Re-establish essential administrative services
The PBF is managed, on behalf of the United Nations Secretary-General, by the Assistant Secretary-General for Peacebuilding Support, supported by the Peacebuilding Support Office (PBSO). The UNDP Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) is the PBF fund administrator.
The PBF relies upon voluntary contributions from Member States, organizations and individuals.
