This year marks the beginning of the implementation of the new Strategic Plan of the Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs (DPPA). The Multi-Year Appeal (MYA) is critical to these efforts, allowing us to do more, more quickly and with more impact. In the first half of 2023, MYA funding supported the breadth of DPPA’s activities at Headquarters and in the field – demonstrating its effectiveness and flexibility. Thanks to the generous support of our donors, DPPA was able to make a difference by meeting mid-year targets in its current 2023-2026 Strategic Plan. The MYA calls for $170 million over the next four years, including 41 million in 2023.
