UNDP Conflict Analysis Consultant Jobs in Kenya

The UN Secretary-General’s Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) was established in 2005 to complement the work of the Peacebuilding Commission and the Peacebuilding Support Office by providing the UN system with early and strategic funding for catalytic, innovative, and risk-taking peacebuilding interventions aligned with national priorities. Since funding its first project in Somalia in 2009, the PBF has steadily increased its investments in the country.

As of 2019, the PBF has invested 46 million USD in Somalia through 24 projects implemented by eleven UN agencies in close partnership with the United Nations Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), the Federal Government of Somalia, the Federal Member States, and civil society.

Investments are guided by a set of peacebuilding priorities derived from the National Development Plan and other relevant national policy frameworks, as well as the UN Strategic Framework for Somalia and the global PBF Strategic Plan.
