PBF provides support to peacebuilding initiatives in four priority areas: (1) supporting the implementation of peace agreements and political dialogue; (2) promoting coexistence and peaceful resolution of conflict; (3) economic revitalization and generation of peace dividends; and (4) rebuilding essential administrative services and capacities. The specific added value of the PBF is: (1) responding quickly and flexibly to critical peacebuilding needs in areas with financial gaps in a variety of post-conflict or fragile settings; (2) galvanizing national ownership of peacebuilding strategies and programs, including through co-chairing the Joint Steering Committee; (3) empowering UN leadership to be more strategic and coherent in responding quickly to critical post-conflict priorities; (4) encouraging innovative approaches that respond to conflict analyses and political momentum; and (5) ensuring catalytic effects, by providing early support to start, unblock or accelerate peacebuilding processes.
PBF Funding Mechanisms are: (1) The Immediate Response Facility (IRF) addresses critical and urgent peacebuilding needs in the immediate aftermath of conflict or as a result of a dramatic change in the country situation. Up to $15 million in IRF funds can be approved; (2) The Peacebuilding and Recovery Facility (PRF) provides medium-term financing in post-conflict contexts for countries declared eligible for PBF funding. PRF funding is based on a Peacebuilding Priority Plan (up to 3 years duration) developed through a country-based Joint Steering Committee and subsequently approved by PBSO. Specific projects are then approved by the Joint Steering Committee, co-chaired by the Government and the UN and including civil society and other development partners.
Eligible applicants are: national authorities, UN leadership, national and international CSOs/CBOs, international development partners, and UN agencies.
Actions must take place in PBC Countries.
The minimum amount is $100,000.
Proposals should be submitted using the specific, relevant templates provided on the PBSO/PBF website. For project proposals, each proposal needs to clearly identify at least one UN agency that will be responsible for the implementation of the project, financial management and reporting.
