The PeaCE programme aims to re-engage Armenians and Azerbaijanis from geographic areas affected by the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict in peacebuilding activities, as well as revive the peacebuilding process within and between these societies. The Partners expect that the PeaCE program will facilitate the engagement of interested civil society actors and grassroots in bridging the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict divide.
The Peacebuilding Funds Opportunity is an instrument that enables individuals and organizations to implement innovative in-country, bilateral or multilateral peacebuilding initiatives that aim at building trust and confidence across the conflict divide.

- Human and leadership capacity building and development
- Civic activism related to peace and conflict transformation
- Human security and management of emergency situations
- Women’s participation in and contribution to peace and stability
- Peacebuilding awareness raising
