Implementing Action for Peacekeeping from a Field Perspective

With the purpose of promoting greater understanding, reflection and ownership of Action for Peacekeeping (A4P) at the mission level, the UN Department of Peace Operations (DPO) and its Division for Policy, Training an Evaluation (DPET), gathered staff from more than 10 missions at the UN Regional Service Centre in Entebbe, Uganda, for a joint reflection.

The Challenges Forum International Secretariat and Challenges Forum partner Center for International Peace Operations (ZIF) supported the facilitation of the workshop. Aside from guiding the missions in how to implement A4P in the field, the participants also shared valuable experiences and ideas on opportunities and challenges in A4P areas such as Political Solutions, Women, Peace and Security (WPS) and Performance.

Ideas generated from the workshop will help the Challenges Forum Partnership to continue to support the A4P implementation. This builds on the field perspective theme from the Challenges Annual Forum 2019 in Montreal, hosted by the Canadian government. See the Challenges Annual Forum report here.
