The UN Secretary-General’s Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) was established in 2005 to complement the work of the Peacebuilding Commission and the Peacebuilding Support Office by providing the UN system with early and strategic funding for catalytic, innovative, and risk-taking peacebuilding interventions aligned with national priorities. Since funding its first project in Somalia in 2009, the PBF has steadily increased its investments in the country. As of 2019, the PBF has invested 46 million USD in Somalia through 24 projects implemented by eleven UN agencies in close partnership with the United Nations Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), the Federal Government of Somalia, the Federal Member States, and civil society. Investments are guided by a set of peacebuilding priorities derived from the National Development Plan and other relevant national policy frameworks, as well as the UN Strategic Framework for Somalia and the global PBF Strategic Plan.
A PBF Secretariat, based in the Integrated Office of the Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator, was established in 2017 to support the coordination of the portfolio in Somalia and the design of new peacebuilding projects based on joint conflict analysis and agreed peacebuilding priorities.
Somalia’s current eligibility period for the PBF expires at the end of 2019. As peacebuilding and state-building efforts in Somalia continue to gain ground and show results, the PBF is well-placed to continue to provide flexible and catalytic support to national peacebuilding priorities through risk-tolerant investments in areas were traditional donor funding is not yet forthcoming. The PBF’s role within the UN’s peace and security architecture is being elevated and peacebuilding and prevention have become central parts of the sustaining peace framework.
Scope of work
To inform Somalia’s request for renewed PBF eligibility, an independent conflict analysis will be undertaken to inform the articulation of new peacebuilding priorities for the next five-year period. The conflict analysis will draw on national policy frameworks such as the new National Development Plan, the four government roadmaps on inclusive politics, justice and security, economic development and social development, the National Reconciliation Framework, and the National Stabilisation Strategy.
The specific task of the consultant will be to produce an independent conflict analysis based on desk research and interviews with key national and international stakeholders in Somalia. Primary consideration shall be given to the overall peacebuilding environment in Somalia and opportunities to strengthen peace. The conflict analysis shall be informed by desk research and interviews with national and international stakeholders in Somalia during visits to Nairobi and Mogadishu.
