Who we are

The Peacebuilding Fund is the Secretary General’s Fund – launched in 2006 to support activities, actions, programmes and organisations that seek to build a lasting peace in countries emerging from conflict.


The Secretary-General has delegated overall management responsibility for the Peacebuilding fund to the Peacebuilding Support Office. The PBSO approves projects and programs and monitors implementation. The United Nations Development Programme’s Multi Partner Trust Fund Office administers the Fund.


At the country level, management of the Fund is delegated to the Joint Steering Committee, co-chaired by the national Government and the United Nations with a broader membership representing national and international stakeholders.


An independent PBF Advisory Group is appointed by the Secretary-General to provide advice and oversight of the speed and appropriateness of fund allocations and to examine performance and financial reports. The group consists of 10 eminent persons, from all regions, with significant peacebuilding experience.
