Funding for Peace

 

The main objective of EPLO's Funding for Peace Working Group (FfP WG) is to advocate for an increase in the volume of EU funding available for civilian peacebuilding and conflict prevention activities.

In this context, the FfP WG aims to ensure an increase in the amount of EU resources which are specifically allocated in support of civilian peacebuilding and conflict prevention activities and that peacebuilding and the prevention of violent conflict are mainstreamed throughout the EU's external financing instruments.

The FfP WG's activities are focused on the EU's external financing instruments (Instrument for Stability, European Instrument for Democracy and Human Rights, Development Co-operation Instrument etc.), the annual EU budget and the long-term EU multiannual financial framework.

For more information about the FfP WG, please contact Ben Moore.
