On 21 September, the Governments of Kenya, Mexico, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sweden and the United Kingdom co-hosted a pledging conference for the Peacebuilding Fund. The United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon opened the well-attended conference which aimed to expand the Fund’s donor base and increase contributions to the fund. By the end of the conference 30 Member States had pledged over US$152 million for the period 2016- 2019. The Peacebuilding Fund was established in 2006 and is the UN system’s financing tool of first resort to help sustain peace. It provides fast, flexible and risk-tolerant financing to UN efforts supporting political solutions aimed at preventing the lapse and relapse into conflict in fragile nations. The total amount pledged falls short of the Fund’s goal of a working capital of US$100 million per year, but is enough to allow the PBF to continue its work in the short term while Member States and the UN seek solutions for long-term funding.

The second annual report in the Financing Series, “Financing the United Nation Development System – Current Trends and New Directions” was launched in New York today. Produced jointly by the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation and the UN MPTF Office, the Report looks at current financing trends and challenges, and identifies interesting new directions in the financial landscape of the UN Development System. It provides an overview of sources and instruments of financing, analyses the implications of financing trends, and through extensive data and essays collection, including from a number of senior UN officials, highlights new thinking around financing the UNDS.

Mr. Do Hung Viet, the Deputy Permanent Representative of the Permanent Mission of Viet Nam moderated the event and panel, which consisted of Dr. Bruce Jenks, Senior Advisor of the Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation, Jennifer Topping, the Executive Coordinator of the MPTF Office, and John Hendra, UNDG’s Senior Coordinator of the UN Fit For Purpose Initiative. After a round of remarks by the panel the session opened up for Q&A to the broad audience representing a wide range of stakeholders.  

One of the report’s key purposes is to stimulate critical debate and action around key issues facing the financing of the UNDS . The active participation during the launch, with volunteers coming forward to  collaborate on the next installment of Financing the United Nations Development System report, was a good indication of the success of the 2016 report in meeting this objective.
