In partnership with the United Nations Department of Public Information and the United Nations Dag Hammarskjold Library, the United Nations Departments of Peacekeeping Operations and Field Support (DPKO and DFS) are pleased to introduce the newly re-designed Peacekeeping Resource Hub. This website is designed to serve as the primary resource for Member States, Peacekeeping Training Institutes, and the UN's partners on peacekeeping-related issues.
It serves as a repository for all official DPKO and DFS training and guidance materials, and provides links to other related UN documents and resources. It also offers links to real-time news and updates in the United Nations peacekeeping world.
The Peacekeeping Resource Hub also provides access to communities of practice, a platform where peacekeeping practitioners and Member States can share and exchange information and ideas about the latest peacekeeping issues as well as collaborate on training and guidance materials.
Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations, Mr. Jean-Pierre Lacroix and Under-Secretary-General for Field Support, Mr. Atul Khare, talk to us about sexual exploitation and abuse by UN peacekeeping personnel. Ending sexual exploitation and abuse is an uphill battle, fought every day in Headquarters, in Missions and in our field offices.
Through this message, they share their determination to bring justice to victims and seek our renewed commitment towards ending this form of abuse.
