The Field Missions Dashboard is elaborated by the Security Council Affairs Division as an information resource for the preparation of the Repertoire of the Practice of the Security Council. The Field Missions Dashboard categorizes the mandates of all existing United Nations peacekeeping operations and special political missions into 21 mandate components – see following page – on the basis of provisions of relevant Security Council decisions. The categorization into 21 mandate components does not reflect any practice or position of the Security Council and is not intended to express any view regarding the status of the mandates of the missions concerned. The Field Missions Dashboard is updated on a quarterly basis (last update: 31 March 2021).
The Field Missions Dashboard is a collaborative project between DPPA, DPO and United Nations Volunteers, with the expertise of Mr. Farakh Saeed through the United Nations Online Volunteering Programme.
