Review of the Peacebuilding Fund


4 June 2009 – In early 2009, Canada, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the UK jointly commissioned a review of the Peacebuilding Fund. The review was carried out by two independent consultants and built further on some of the findings of the 2008 OIOS evaluation of the PBF. The focus of the joint review was to look at how to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of PBF mechanisms and operating modalities in order to achieve the PBF’s stated aims. The Peacebuilding Support Office and UNDP Multi-Donor Trust Fund Office were represented on the review Steering Group along with the commissioning donors. The final report puts forward a number of specific recommendations and benchmarks for implementation in order to contribute to the ongoing PBF reform effort. The full report is available here.
