Darfur Community Peace and Stability Fund

Recognizing the need for visible peace dividends for Darfurians during the political negotiation process, the Darfur International Partners (DIP) group created the Darfur Community Peace and Stability Fund (DCPSF) which was announced in Sirte in October 2007. The Fund seeks to promote community level trust, confidence and peace building throughout Darfur. It is envisaged that by facilitating confidence and trust at the grass roots level, the DCPSF will address the root causes of violence, providing a platform for dialogue and promoting reconciliation across ethnic, tribal and political divides.

The Fund complements assistance channeled through bilateral and multilateral humanitarian funding streams like the Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF), by concentrating support on the delivery of early recovery and development assistance on a small scale, as an incentive to peace, until such time as the Darfur Joint Assessment Mission (DJAM) is resumed and completed, and the Darfur Early Recovery Programme initiated. The DJAM, which was suspended in October 2006 due to insecurity and political fragmentation, will only resume once conditions of 1) security on the ground, and 2) a credible and inclusive process, have been met.

The DCPSF is innovative in that it encourages a conflict sensitive approach by engaging diverse communities to collectively identify their needs, rather than simply responding to humanitarian needs.
