Darfur Community Peace and Stability Fund (DCPSF) was established in late 2007 as a UN Multi-Partnership Trust Fund (MPTF) mechanism that supports community-level peacebuilding activities and fosters social cohesion by drawing diverse communities together through processes of dialogue, mediation, and reconciliation. The rationale of DCPSF is that alongside any progress in the local peace process, there needs to be a community-based, bottom-up approach to the stabilization of Darfur and the creation of conditions for local peace, and equitable and sustainable growth. DCPSF supports initiatives which aim to restore trust and confidence between diverse communities in Darfur and respond to root causes and triggers of conflict.
DCPSF has made significant progress in promoting conflict-sensitive approaches that seek to engage diverse communities in processes of trust and confidence building. Two central elements of this approach have been through supporting the establishment or revitalization of local mechanisms for resolving and through preventing conflicts and providing tangible inputs which respond to and address root causes and triggers of conflict.
Through this approach, DCPSF-funded activities and processes have enabled diverse communities to coalesce around a common agenda towards reconciliation and peaceful coexistence at a local level. However, the new context requires the addition of more dimensions to DCPSF interventions. In this new era for DCPSF and Darfur, it is crucial to mainstream gender equality in all project activities, and work in a coordinated manner with all peacebuilding actors, towards a common goal and better results.
Duties and Responsibilities
A context analysis undertaken in Darfur in 2019 revealed that the conflict dynamics in Darfur revolve around unresolved disputes over land, livelihood, and natural resources, prevalence of small weapons, sexual violence, armed group activities, tensions around IDPs and host communities, as well as between returnees and communities, including new settlers. The drivers of the conflict in Darfur are complex, multi-level, politicized and encompass local, national, regional, and international dimensions simultaneously. An understanding of historical causal factors is required since each cycle of conflict has led to the current dynamics in the region.
To achieve this, DCPSF works with various Implementing Partners (IPs) including International Non-Government Organisations (INGOs) and National Non-Government Organisations to promote peacebuilding among the local communities in Darfur. For its current phase II of implementation, DCPSF is working with 17 Implementing Partners to deliver 17 peacebuilding projects across the five (5) states of Darfur.
As part of efforts to ensure that our projects across the region have gender mainstreamed into their activities and yield high impact gender sensitive results that are well monitored evaluated, documented and reported, DCPSF is organising 4 training sessions in (Khartoum, Nyala, El Fasher and Zalingei respectively) to build the capacity of both DCPSF and Implementing Partners’ technical staff.
