Peacebuilding and Sustaining Peace - Security Council, 8579th
18 Jul 2019 -  With UN Secretary-General António Guterres.

The closure of peacekeeping operations in Côte d’Ivoire in 2017 and in Liberia in 2018, and the ongoing transitions of United Nations peace operations in other countries have highlighted the importance of coherent efforts to ensure that the necessary capacities and resources are in place to continue critical peacebuilding processes. Improving the management of transitions, including by generating early and more comprehensive preparations for transition processes, is essential to setting the conditions for durable peace and managing the risk of a reversal of peacebuilding gains, which has occurred in some countries in the past.
