The Good Peacebuilding Financing (GPF) initiative has been mooted at an opportune moment when global leaders’ attention will be focused on peacebuilding, during the upcoming UN High-level Meeting on Peacebuilding Financing. Although the objectives of the GPF exceed the High-level Meeting, this moment provides a key opportunity for reflection and mobilization of action on peacebuilding, with the aim to improve the quality and quantity of financing and the delivery of meaningful results. It is also an opportunity to kickstart new and more inclusive approaches to peacebuilding financing.

This policy brief is based on priorities identified through consultations with a group of donors contributing to peacebuilding financing convened by the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs; independent meetings with some partners from the G77; discussions with technical partners; an extensive literature review; and newly commissioned research. This brief’s main purpose is to spur action across a broad range of actors to further consolidate principles of good peacebuilding financing, and how these can be advanced and operationalized.
