Through his Action for Peacekeeping (A4P) initiative, the Secretary-General calls on Member States, the Security Council, host countries, troop- and police-contributing countries, regional partners and financial contributors to renew our collective engagement with UN peacekeeping and mutually commit to reach for excellence. Peacekeeping is one of the most effective tools available to the United Nations in the promotion and maintenance of international peace and security. Yet peacekeeping faces several challenges that undermine its ability to deliver on its mandates. Political solutions are often absent, and missions seem to have mandates that lack focus and clear priorities. Complex threats in several environments are causing a rise in fatalities and injuries of peacekeepers, and missions have sometimes lacked the personnel and equipment to meet these threats. Peacekeeping operations have also faced challenges in delivering on protection mandates and in contributing to long-term, sustainable peace, and in achieving coherence with other actors operating in the same contexts. To respond to these challenges, the Secretary-General launched Action for Peacekeeping (A4P) to renew mutual political commitment to peacekeeping operations. The Secretary-General has called on Member States to join him in developing a set of mutually-agreed principles and commitments to create peacekeeping operations fit for the future, with the goal of reaching a formal agreement by the end of 2018. On 25 September, the Secretary-General will be hosting a GA73 High-level meeting on Action for Peacekeeping (A4P). High-level Meeting on Action for Peacekeeping The Action for Peacekeeping (A4P) High-level Meeting on 25 September will be chaired by the Secretary-General. It will see over 100 Member States and several regional and international organizations in attendance, including many at the highest levels. This High-level Meeting brings all partners together to demonstrate peacekeeping’s successes, acknowledge our challenges, and spur the action needed by all peacekeeping stakeholders to enable our missions to bring lasting peace to the countries in which we are mandated to serve. We are heartened by the enthusiastic support of more than 140 countries, as well as three international and regional organizations to the Declaration of Shared Commitments. The event will serve as a critical stepping-stone towards its implementation by all the Secretariat, Security Council members, financial-, troop-, and police-contributors, host countries and regional organizations. The public will be able to watch it live via UN webcast at starting at 1500 hours EST. Declaration of Shared Commitments The Secretary-General shared the Declaration of Shared Commitments on 16 August and invited Member States and relevant international and regional organisations to endorse it. The Declaration reflects the commitments that Member States, the Secretariat and international and regional organisations have indicated they could make during extensive consultations held in June and July 2018 in New York. The commitments represent collective action to strengthen peacekeeping. Endorsements of the Declaration We’re pleased to announce that the following countries have endorsed the Declaration of Shared Commitments on Peacekeeping Operations (as of 25 September).
