Project: Donor Funding and WPS Implementation

In this research, we wanted to better understand the funding of women’s peacebuilding activities. We spoke to a number of women’s civil society organisations across Colombia, Nepal and Northern Ireland and found that their work tends to be funded by a patchwork of donors, and is largely project-based with year-to-year uncertainty. We have identified a number of opportunities for donors and civil society organisations to work together to better understand the needs on the ground and recognise the practicalities of working in conflict and post-conflict settings.
