Summary
The United Nations Peacekeeping Ministerial is an important opportunity for Member States to come together in a collective effort to strengthen the effectiveness of peacekeeping operations and their impact on the communities they serve. In 2023, the Peacekeeping Ministerial will be hosted by Ghana in Accra on 5-6 December.
Description

The closing session will recap key points of the discussion and pledges made by Member States.

With missions facing greater challenges than ever, the Ministerial will focus on protection of civilians, strategic communications (including addressing mis-disinformation and hate speech), safety and security, the mental health of peacekeepers, and women in peacekeeping.

Peacekeeping is a powerful demonstration of multilateral cooperation. In this regard, further progress in improving our effectiveness requires strengthening and expanding partnerships, including in areas such as conduct and discipline and environmental sustainability, where Member State support is critical.
