Peace Agreements and Trust Funds


A ‘Trust Fund’ or ‘Multi Donor Trust Fund’ (MDTF) is a ‘multi-agency funding mechanism, designed to receive contributions from more than one donor (and often also the recipient government), that is held in trust by an appointed administrative agent’ (Walton, 2011: 1). This report examines how peace agreements have addressed or contributed to the establishment or ongoing operation of trust funds.
