The Peacebuilding Commission

The Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) was jointly established by the General Assembly and the Security Council in 2005 as a new intergovernmental advisory body of the United Nations that supported peace efforts in countries emerging from conflict. Its aim is to propose integrated strategies for post-conflict peacebuilding and recovery, bring together all of the relevant actors and marshal resources. The Security Council has also established a number of peacebuilding offices. For the meetings in the Council focusing on general issues relating to peacebuilding, please go here .
