The Guidelines for the Peace and Stabilisation Fund (“the Guidelines”) provide a common overarching framework for the management of activities financed by the Peace and Stabilisation Fund (“the Fund”). The purpose of the Guidelines is to facilitate coherence and integration of stabilisation initiatives across authorities despite differences in mandates and operational measures and processes. The Guidelines are the principal management and administration framework for preparation, management and completion of all activities under the Fund.

The Guidelines describe the overall principles and considerations behind the Fund as well as the programming processes and cycle. They provide guidance on how to prepare and manage activities financed by the Fund whilst drawing on existing guidelines such as the Danida Aid Management Guidelines (AMG) and where relevant OECD DAC Guidelines for engagement in fragile and conflict-affected situations. Furthermore, they define the requirements for approval processes and administrative procedures and include links to all relevant complementary administrative guidelines. Where there are special processes regulating the Fund these will be mentioned explicitly.
