Portfolio Evaluations

The Peacebuilding Fund embraces its central role in contributing to the knowledge base on what works and what doesn’t when supporting conflict-affected communities. Underpinning this work is a monitoring and evaluation function that stresses learning as well as accountability.

Ensuring high-quality evaluation is a shared responsibility between the PBF and fund recipients, with responsibility for mandatory project evaluations resting with fund recipients, while evaluations of whole country portfolios are undertaken by the Peacebuilding Support Office.
