17 Dec 2013
New York – The Slovak Republic, current co-chair of the UN Security Sector Reform (SSR) Group of Friends, today made its first contribution to a UN pooled fund administered by the MPTF Office. Slovakia became the 55th financial contributor to the UN Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) in line with its commitment to strengthen peacebuilding efforts, particularly around security sector reform.
The Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the Slovak Republic to the UN, and the Executive Coordinator of the MPTF Office signed the Standard Administrative Arrangement for the contribution of Euros 30,500 to the UN PBF. The PBF was launched in 2006 by the UN Secretary-General following General Assembly and Security Council resolutions. Since then, it has delivered more than $428 million in fast, flexible and catalytic funding to 27 countries emerging from conflict. The PBF has the broadest contributors’ base of all MPTF Office administered funds.
