On 21 April 2022 from 0900 – 1030 ET (1500-1630 CEST), ECDPM’s Andrew Sherriff will be a panelist at the roundtable ‘Good peacebuilding financing: Opportunities for action in the current context’, an informal roundtable discussion ahead of the High-level Meeting on Peacebuilding Financing.
Ahead of the upcoming High-level Meeting on Peacebuilding Financing in late April, the NYU Center on International Cooperation (CIC) and the Permanent Mission of Sweden to the United Nations will host an informal roundtable discussion to provide a space to discuss the larger issues at stake for peacebuilding financing in our current moment.
This roundtable will introduce the Good Peacebuilding Financing (GPF) initiative and provide an opportunity for deeper reflection and high-level mobilizing of commitments and action on peacebuilding. A central portion of the discussion will focus on a set of recommendations for new and more inclusive approaches to peacebuilding financing that was just published by CIC, with technical inputs from global partners.
