Current Peacekeeping Missions

Article excerpt

UNTSO and UNMOGIP are funded from the United Nations regular biennial budget. Costs to the United Nations of the 12 other current operations are financed from their own separate accounts on the basis of legally binding assessments on all Member States. For these missions, budget figures are for one year, unless otherwise specified, and include the prorated share of the support account for peacekeeping operations and the United Nations Logistics Base at Brindisi (Italy). The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), one of a number of United Nations political and peace-building missions, is also directed and supported by the Department of Peacekeeping Operations. The UNAMA web site is located at For more information on United Nations political missions, see the web site at
