This fund aims to help establish an environment for peace and stability that is rooted in the values of the Middle East and that respects the international principles and standards for human rights, including the rights of women. CIDA's contribution provides support to selected local and regional non-governmental organizations to implement projects which contribute to reducing human rights abuses and increasing women’s influence on promoting human rights and peace building.
This is a new feature, part of CIDA's efforts towards increasing transparency. Information will only be available for projects approved after October 15, 2011. For other projects, information on expected results is usually included in the description.
Results achieved by The Fund, a five-year $5M initiative ending in September 2013, contributed to an environment of peace and stability, and increased women’s influence and respect for human rights, rooted in the values of the Arab World and in accordance with international principles and standards. Overall, the Regional Human Rights and Peace Building Fund provided direct support to 39 selected NGOs and not-for profit institutions in the Arab region (18 from Lebanon, 9 from Iraq, 1 from the West Bank, 4 from Morocco, 2 from Tunisia, 3 from Egypt, and 2 regional projects). The funded projects can be divided into six categories as follows: psychosocial and legal support for women and youth, peace building and conflict resolution initiatives, human rights & peace building education through creative tools, capacity building, human rights empowerment in Palestinian Camps, and enhancing democratic reform and transition.
