In October 2019 the UN Secretary-General, at the request of the then Government, declared Sudan eligible to the UN Secretary-General’s Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) for a period of five years.
The PBF currently has 14 active projects in Sudan with the total budget of $44.3 million working across durable solutions, rule of law, local peacebuilding, peace agreement implementation, women’s empowerment and youth empowerment.
The PBF invests with UN entities, governments, regional organizations, multilateral banks, national multi-donor trust funds or civil society organizations.
The Fund works across pillars and supports integrated UN responses to fill critical gaps; respond quickly and with flexibility to peacebuilding opportunities; and catalyze processes and resources in a risk-tolerant fashion.
The Resident Coordinator provides leadership, oversight, and strategic guidance to the PBF portfolio in the country.
