UN Post-conflict Multi-Partner Trust Fund for Colombia


In 2016, the UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund was established to contribute to the implementation of the Peace Agreement signed between the State of Colombia and the guerrilla organisation FARC. The funding (86 MUSD) for the first phase was provided by the UN and eleven states. The second phase of the Fund, focusing on peacebuilding and sustainable development with regard to the priorities of the National Development Plan, was approved in December 2018. The key thematic areas are the stabilisation of the regions most affected by the conflict, the integration of former combatants into the society, victims, and transitional justice and communication. The project primarily promotes Finland's development policy priority of ‘strengthening the democracy and functionality of societies’. Additionally, the project also promotes the rights and status of women and girls. In March 2020, the total amount of contributions for the UN Multi-Partner Trust Fund was a total of 149.5 MUSD, of which 119.2 MUSD has been allocated to projects. From the appropriations, 87 MUSD comes from Phase I of the Fund and 62.5 MUSD from Phase II. In 2019 and 2020, Finland supported the Fund with 150 000 EUR respectively. In 2021, Finland continues its funding and contributes 150 000 EUR to the Fund.
