Peacebuilding Architecture Review Blog
With 2015 being 10 years since the establishment of the Peacebuilding Architecture, a second review was started. This review presented the international community with a unique opportunity to set the agenda for the UN’s peace and development agenda and provide input into the type of architecture they would see as effective. With South Africa holding a position of the Peacebuilding Commission’s organisational committee as well as the Chair of the African Union Post Conflict Reconstruction and Development Committee on South Sudan, South Africa pledged to support the work of the PBC and the successful implementation of the recommendations of the review. ACCORD, as an African based civil society organisation, took the initiative to start this blog which reflected on the UN’s intervention in Africa: challenges and success stories.
The blog ran from April to late 2015, with two pieces per month looking at issues relating to peacebuilding. The idea was to promote the African voice to the United Nations and ensure that the Advisory Group on the Peacebuilding Architecture Review hears these views.
A synthesised report from all submissions will be submitted to the Advisory Group on the Peacebuilding Architecture Review as part of an official submission to be considered by the panel.
