New York, 13 Mar 2008 – The Secretary-General declared today Guinea Bissau eligible for support from the Peacebuilding Fund. This important announcement comes in response to a decision of the Peacebuilding Commission on 20 February, in its country-specific configuration on Guinea-Bissau, to advise the Secretary-General to declare the country eligible. The amount of the country allocation will be determined at a later stage, based on the outcome of consultations between the Government of Guinea-Bissau and the United Nations.
