Multi-Partner Trust Fund for Peace in Colombia

The United Nations Multi-Partner Trust Fund for Peace in Colombia is a tripartite instrument established by the Government of Colombia, the United Nations and donor countries, with the participation of the civil society, which aims to articulate the investments of the international community to support the implementation of the Final Agreement for the Termination of the Conflict and the Construction of a Stable and Lasting Peace ”(hereinafter the Final Agreement) signed between the Government of Colombia and the former FARC-EP, in 2016.


In the early stages after the signing of the Final Agreement, it was difficult to predict that bottlenecks would occur that could stall some processes. However, at that time there was a need for an immediate response, and to quickly generate peace dividends to manage and meet the country's high expectations in the areas most affected by violence and poverty. It was necessary to join the efforts of multiple actors including international cooperation to take advantage of their expertise and financial resources in order to channel them, and thus support the Government to meet its objectives of implementation of the Final Agreement.


This is how the Fund was born in 2016, whose main focus is to mobilize and coordinate the financing and co-financing of catalytic interventions to support the implementation of the Final Agreement. Catalytic investments are understood to be those aimed at filling strategic financing gaps when there are no other resources available, investments that unlock or enable processes that are vital for peacebuilding, or also financial resources that support innovative or high-risk approaches that partners cannot support. The Fund is the strategic partner of Colombians for peace.

Sustainable human development: 144 Projects

This scope aims to strengthen the state's presence and capacity in the municipalities most affected by the conflict with the objective of closing historical gaps, reducing inequity, and enhancing security.

The Fund has prioritized comprehensive interventions in the places most affected by the conflict, formulated within the framework of the PDET, which seek territorial transformations on various fronts, allowing the generation of opportunities for the populations that have been most vulnerable.
