KORE - Knowledge sharing platform on Emergencies and Resilience

Sustaining peace in the Sahel and West Africa

Lessons learned and good practices from FAO Peacebuilding Fund projects

Since 2018, the portfolio of PBF projects implemented by FAO in the region has consolidated considerably, with a tripling of funding mobilized. It is with a view to reinforcing this momentum of increasing PBF projects that the FAO Subregional Resilience Team for West Africa and the Sahel (REOWA) has initiated a process of exchange between country offices, with a view to generating knowledge aimed at developing best practices in peacebuilding.

This summary report makes available the results of the self-assessment of the PBF projects and the highlights of the virtual workshop held on 31 May 2022, focusing on:

  • the effects induced by the interventions carried out by FAO on the peacebuilding dynamic;
  • the good or promising practices promoted in terms of building sustainable peace; and
  • the main lessons concerning the approach to formulating PBF projects, as well as the strategies for operational implementation and monitoring-evaluation of the interventions.

This feedback will help to improve programming practices in the region's country offices, as well as fostering exchanges with colleagues from country offices in other regions of Africa and United Nations agencies that collaborate with FAO in implementing PBF projects.
