High-level Event on Action for Peacekeeping (A4P)
25 Sep 2018 -  The Secretary-General launched the Action for Peacekeeping (A4P) initiative at the Security Council open debate on peacekeeping operations on 28 March 2018, during which he requested a strategic-level renewal of political support for peacekeeping by key stakeholders. A4P builds upon a range of initiatives to make its peacekeeping operations more effective, safer and better designed to advance political settlements. These include, inter alia, the Action Plan to reduce peacekeeper fatalities and the independent reviews on specific peacekeeping operations. The summit-level event falls within the same year as the 70th anniversary of UN peacekeeping. It will therefore be an important opportunity to reiterate the challenges facing UN peacekeeping, demonstrate that the Secretariat is pro-actively working to address them, and articulate what collective action is required from all peacekeeping stakeholders.
