UN Peacebuilding Fund

Volume 474: debated on Wednesday 2 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what funding the UK has provided for the UN Peacebuilding Fund; what commitments the UK has entered into for further such funding; and what steps he has taken to encourage others to make contributions to the Fund. (197892)

I have been asked to reply.

The UK has committed £30 million over three years (2007-09) to the UN Peacebuilding Fund, of which £18 million has been disbursed so far. The UK regularly encourages other contributions to the Peacebuilding Fund as a member of the Peacebuilding Commission.
