Independent Evaluation of the UN Peace Fund for Nepal
PDF File Size: 2.04 MB | Download   
Following the signature in November 2006 of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) in Nepal, a number of principles were adopted by the parties to the conflict: to address the root causes of conflict, and to conduct a number of governance reforms leading to more democracy in a highly fragmented and polarised social and political landscape. The CPA committed the signatories to pursuing inclusive recovery and rehabilitation, and ensuring justice and reparations for victims of conflict. It also committed to the formation of transitional justice mechanisms.
The CPA provided a good framework for international peacebuilding interventions to support the peace process. In March 2007 Security Council Resolution 1740 mandated the creation of the United Nations Peace Fund for Nepal (UNPFN). Its goal was to finance projects solicited from UN organisations. The Fund was originally designed to last one year, but the prolongation of the peace process led to extensions until June 2016 (two projects are still to be completed).
UNPFN’s objectives evolved over time as the context changed. They were based on the strategic analysis done by senior UN staff complementing the work of the Nepal Peace Trust Fund, which was managed jointly by the government of Nepal (GoN) and donors. The Fund was to be very responsive by providing resources for initiatives that would fill significant gaps in the implementation of the CPA.
The identification and funding of these initiatives was decided by the UNPFN Executive Committee which oversaw the operations. It was composed of UN, donor and GoN representatives. When the United Nations Mission in Nepal closed in 2009, the UN Office managing the Fund was taken over by the UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator (UN RC).
UNPFN received contributions from the governments of the United Kingdom, Norway, Denmark,
Canada and Switzerland, as well as from the global UN Peacebuilding Fund (PBF), which itself has over 50 donors. USD 46.4 million was allocated through 34 projects selected by a competitive process. All the UN agencies operating in Nepal participated in these projects across the country.
