Hosted by the UN Peacebuilding Support Office, the German Federal Foreign Office, and the Republic of Colombia.
The financing landscape for peacebuilding, development and humanitarian affairs is increasingly diversified. While an array of innovative financing instruments for the mobilization of private funds – such as blended finance, impact bonds and guarantees – has become available, implementing such instruments towards peacebuilding efforts is particularly challenging in conflict-affected settings.
Join this event where our CEO Joan Larrea will moderate an expert roundtable on Blended Finance for Peacebuilding, with:
