Description of charity's activities and outcomes
Scoping missions to Timor Leste and especially the Solomon Islands have been valuable in demonstrating the demand for Peacifica's peacebuilding and advisory services. A program concept is now being developed for the Solomon Islands that will:a) implement peacebuilding research and project activity at provincial levelb) foster the development of local peacebuilding networksc) strengthen the national civil society peacebuilding dialogue in the Solomon Islands and connect it to the international peacebuilding community.Peacebuilding advocacy objectives have been pursued through policy submissions to the DFAT Foreign Policy White Paper and Senate inquiry into climate change and security. Also through social media (@peacifica) and blog activity ( a network of peacebuilders in Sydney has been advanced through collaboration on policy with UNSW, University of Sydney, UTS and the Institute for Economics and Peace. Also through building relationships with institutions including the Sydney Peace Foundation and the UN Association of Australia. Also through working with a group of volunteer interns who have graduated from UNSW Development Studies and International Relations Programs. The peacebuilding community was further strengthened through the executive director lecturing on a couple of occasions at UNSW, and also through Peacifica's active participation in the UNSW Development Week.Membership has grown.Peacifica at this stage is funded by the executive director. Broadening funding will be a priority for 2018, with the success of ACNC registration being essential for this.
