Finance for Peace is a collective initiative that seeks 
to change how investment supports peace

Finance for Peace works with partners to catalyse a market for peace-positive investment. We work collectively to create standards, market intelligence and partnerships across sectors to build trust, share knowledge and establish networks.

Through leveraging and creating new partnerships of on the ground community engagement and political support, Finance for Peace aims to scale what we call “Peace Finance” – investment that has an intentional and positive impact on peace while promoting economic development, job creation and better livelihoods. Peace-positive investment generates mutual benefits of reduced risks for investors and communities and can achieve both bankable and peaceful outcomes.

Peace-positive investment encompasses different asset classes such as Peace Bonds or Peace Equity or similar structures, across a range of sectors. In order for Peace Bonds and Peace-Equity like structures to take flight, we need commonly agreed standards and guidance that the market can trust and use, as well as new partnerships and knowledge.

Finance for Peace brings together investors, private sector actors, development finance institutions and other development actors, governments, peacebuilders, civil society and communities, to identify innovative solutions that can bring true additionality to investors, as well as more inclusive development. 

Finance for Peace is supported by the German Federal Foreign Office (GFFO) and builds on feasibility research supported by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Development Office (FCDO) on a new sustainable investment category called Peace Bonds. Finance for Peace has been incubated by Interpeace, an international peacebuilding organisation that has worked on conflict resolution and peacebuilding throughout Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Europe and Latin America for 30 years.
