Darfur Community Peace and Stability Fund


ABOUT DCPSF

Recognizing the need for visible peace dividends for Darfurians during the political negotiation process, the Darfur International Partners (DIP) group created the 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.

SMALL GRANTS PROGRAMME
In keeping with the principles and criteria that underpin the Fund, the DCPSF Steering Committee (SC) tasked the Technical Secretariat (TS) with formulating a small grants mechanism. Administered by an agency or consortium of agencies serving as a Small Grants Programme Manager, the window looks to allocate grants of a maximum of USD 50,000 to grantees. The grant, which was finally allocated to a consortium of NGOs (Catholic Relief Services as lead agency, World Vision and Sudanese NGO CAFA) has a threefold purpose:
i) to augment the administrative and management capacity of national actors;
ii) to enhance operational capability in the delivery of DCPSF programmes and
iii) through strengthening indigenous networks and platforms, promote a uniform methodological approach to conflict analysis and mainstreaming conflict sensitive approaches.
