As innovative work in uncertain and fragile conflict-affected societies is often not possible through normal sources of World Bank funding, the Post-Conflict Fund (PCF) supports planning, piloting and analysis of ground-breaking activities through funding governments and partner organizations in the forefront of this work. The emphasis is on speed and flexibility without sacrificing quality.
The Post-Conflict Fund (PCF) of the World Bank was established in 1997, to enhance the World Bank's ability to support countries in transition from conflict to sustainable peace and economic growth. The Post-Conflict Fund makes grants to a wide range of partners (institutions, nongovernmental organizations, United Nations agencies, transitional authorities, governments, and other civil society institutions) to provide earlier and broader World Bank assistance to conflict-affected countries.
Grants are focused on the restoration of the lives and livelihood of war-affected population, with a premium placed on innovative approaches to conflict, partnerships with donors and executing agencies and leveraging resources through a variety of funding arrangements.
