More funds needed to protect ‘future generations from the scourge of war’

A UN fund which supports countries emerging from conflict, needs an extra US$70 million just to keep up with current demand, according to a senior UN official.

The UN Peace Building Commission was established in 2005 to serve post-conflict countries in need of aid, such as Colombia.

In recent years there has been a shift towards so-called “preventative” peacebuilding.
