Management Mechanisms

The Steering Committee
The main body of the Peace Fund is the Steering Committee, which manages the projects activities and provides policy and strategic direction. It is responsible for the final approval on submitted proposals. The committee represents the main partners: the State Secretariat of Youth and Sports as well as Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ).  

The National Consultative Group
On special occasions the National Secretariat calls in a temporary group of experts and experienced NGO members to offer advice regarding feasibility and social approach on
large scale projects with national relevance. Regular members of the National Consultative Group are Rede Feto, a national network of women organizations, FONGTIL, the nationwide umbrella organization of NGOs acting in Timor-Leste, and CNJTL, the National Youth Council.
