Conferenza ministeriale sul peacekeeping 2019


 26 mar - The United Nations is hosting the 2019 United Nations Peacekeeping Ministerial on Uniformed Capabilities, Performance and Protection on 29 March 2019 at United Nations Headquarters in New York.

Building on the ongoing effort to strengthen peacekeeping operations through the Secretary-General’s Action for Peacekeeping initiative (A4P) and the previous peacekeeping ministerials and summits in New York (2014), the Leaders’ Summit on Peacekeeping in New York (2015) and the Paris (2016), London (2016), and Vancouver (2017), the meeting presents an opportunity to discuss and generate the specialized capabilities necessary for contemporary United Nations peacekeeping, with a specific focus on uniformed capabilities, performance and the protection of civilians.

The objective is for ministers from around the world to reaffirm their commitment to UN peacekeeping and discuss concrete ways their countries will work towards strengthening uniformed capabilities, performance and the protection of civilians in UN Peacekeeping. In particular the ministerial aims to:

Continue to generate specialized, high-performing capabilities for UN peacekeeping to meet evolving needs and address new challenges, particularly high-capacity enablers, rapidly deployable capabilities, francophone units and more women peacekeepers;
Strengthen compliance with training and performance standards, including to address safety and security issues; and
Leverage political momentum to assist the UN in its reform efforts, further galvanizing Member State support for implementation of A4P commitments.
The 2019 Peacekeeping Ministerial will build on the discussions of the preparatory meetings held in Montevideo on training and capacity building, The Hague on protection and performance, and Addis Ababa on women, peace and security.

In the course of the meeting, Ministers are expected to highlight progress on relevant commitments made by Member States in the Declaration of Shared Commitments on United Nations Peacekeeping Operations, as well as announce specific pledges of key peacekeeping capabilities requested in the United Nations Peacekeeping Uniformed Capability Requirements Paper, including training and capacity-building support, support to the women peace and security agenda, and related partnership initiatives.

The event will be open to media and webcast live on UNWebTV.
