The United Nations Peacebuilding Fund "was launched on 11 October 2006 in response to the growing global demand for sustained support to countries emerging from conflict. The role of the Peacebuilding Fund is to establish a crucial bridge between conflict and recovery at a time when other funding mechanisms may not yet be available. In helping to address the most immediate out of the multiple challenges facing post-conflict countries, the PBF seeks to minimize the risk of a relapse into conflict. The Peacebuilding Fund supports countries before the Peacebuilding Commission (PBC), currently Burundi and Sierra Leone, but is also available to countries in similar circumstances as designated by the Secretary-General. With an initial funding target set at US$ 250 million, the Peacebuilding Fund aims at stabilising and strengthening government institutions thereby enhancing their capacity to sustain the peace process." [1]

" Following a request from the General Assembly and the Security Council, the Secretary-General established a Peacebuilding Fund for post-conflict peacebuilding initiatives in October 2006." [2]

The Inaugural meeting of the Peacebuilding Fund Advisory Group was held on 6 September 2007.
