This project works toward enabling international and regional organizations, including the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN, the World Food Programme, the UN Children’s Fund, the World Health Organization, Peacekeeping Missions and UN Women, among others, to more effectively contribute to peace through their humanitarian, development, and stabilization interventions. The four priority sectors that are targeted are food security, water, sanitization and hygiene, health, and stabilization.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved peace responsiveness, programme effectiveness, and sustainability of development, humanitarian, and stabilization programmes delivered by the organizations; (2) contribution of rigorous learning and evidence about peace responsive programming that incentivises more programming, as well as institutional and systemic change supporting it; and (3) ensured greater policy and donor support that incentivizes peace responsiveness across the international humanitarian, development and stabilization sectors.

Results achieved 

Results achieved as of May 2022 include: (1) designed seven peace responsive joint programmes with United Nations (UN) agency country offices in Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Guinea Bissau, Kenya, Mali, Mandera triangle, and Ukraine. Four of these offices have received funding; (2) developed guidance documents and tools on peace-responsiveness with UN partner organizations. This included a peace and conflict analysis guide for the International Labour Organization, and a health and peace handbook for the World Health Organization; and (3) trained a little under 100 strategically placed change agents working in and on fragile-and conflict-affected contexts. They have undertaken the effective advising course, with all post-course survey respondents indicating a great degree of satisfaction, relevance and applicability of the course.
