The Joint Peace Fund (JPF) is a multi-donor fund designed to support national efforts to achieve lasting settlement of ethnic armed conflict in Myanmar and to build broad-based participation and support for the implementation of a Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement. The Fund enables donors to better coordinate and align their efforts to negotiate and implement a fully inclusive peace process, working jointly with the government and ethnic armed organizations. The JPF is supported by other donors including the European Union, United Kingdom, Denmark, Australia, Switzerland, Finland, United States, Norway and Italy.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) strengthened institutions, processes and activities that form the core architecture of the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement and/or other peace instruments that may be negotiated in the future (including efforts that promote the accession of non-signatory ethnic armed organizations to the agreement); (2) increased peacebuilding support to respond to demands emerging mainly from the sub-state and community levels. The JPF supports initiatives that increase trust, confidence, engagement and participation in the peace process and/or enhance safety and security at the community level; and (3) increased applied research that strengthens stakeholder understanding
