    Colombia

    Historic transitional justice hearing with leaders of the former FARC-EP guerrilla

    The UN Verification Mission accompanied public hearings on crimes committed by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia – People's Army (FARC-EP) held from 21 to 23 June in Bogotá. With several victims participating in the hearings, the former FARC-EP leaders recognized their responsibility regarding war crimes and crimes against humanity.

    Peacebuilding

    PBC Ambassadorial-level meeting on the Peacebuilding activities

    On 24 June, Elizabeth Spehar, the Assistant Secretary-General (ASG) for Peacebuilding Support (PBSO), briefed the Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) on the activities of the Peacebuilding Fund (PBF). The Secretary-General’s report ‘Our Common Agenda’ continues to place PBF and the wider Peacebuilding architecture at the heart of the Secretary-General’s vision for the UN. ASG Spehar highlighted the robust performance of the Fund, meeting high demands, while funding remains inadequate and insufficiently predictable. If not adequately addressed, she said, the funding gap would force PBF to curtail its planned support for this year. ASG Spehar also updated the Commission on the performance of the Fund’s priority windows, which include encouraging women and youth inclusion, facilitating UN Transitions, and enhancing cross-border approaches. The largest amount of Fund’s support remains focused on Sub-Sahara Africa, followed by Central and South America, Europe and Central Asia, Asia and the Pacific, and the Middle East and North Africa. The Fund’s growth, as foreseen in its 2020-24 Strategy, has been impacted due to the shortfall in resources. 

    Quarterly Peacebuilding Fund Group of Friends meeting

    The quarterly Group of Friends meeting of the Peacebuilding Fund took place on 23 June, co-chaired by the United Kingdom and Sweden. Alice Shackelford, the UN Resident Coordinator in Honduras, highlighted the Fund’s role in supporting national peacebuilding priorities. Since 2018, the PBF has invested around USD $13 million in Honduras. Strategic use of the PBF’s investments in Honduras helped bring the UN Country Team together to contribute to violence prevention in last year's election. Brian Willians, the Chief of Financing for Peacebuilding in PBSO, updated the partners on fund status and programmatic priorities for 2022. He noted the Fund’s investments on facilitating the gradual drawdown of the UN Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (MONUSCO) and the projects under development in eastern states in Sudan. Cross-border programmes continue to be a priority, for example working in the border regions of Benin and Niger, where risks of spreading extremist violence are growing. In the Great Lakes region, the PBF is supporting UN agencies to help with regional reintegration challenges, in line with Special Envoy of the Secretary-General Huang Xia’s work. For 2022, the Fund still requires $145.3 million in additional contributions to meet its $275 million target. Preparations are ongoing for the midterm review of the PBF strategy 2020-24.

    Aswan Forum on sustainable peace and development

    On 21 and 22 June, ASG Spehar attended the 3rd Aswan Forum on sustainable peace and development in Cairo, Egypt. The Forum focused on “Africa in an Era of Cascading Risks and Climate Vulnerability: Pathways for a Peaceful, Resilient, and Sustainable Continent." Speaking as a panelist, ASG Spehar spoke on the linkages between climate, peace and security, and DPPA's support, as well as how financing for peace and development can be more sustainable, predictable and contribute to long-term resilience. ASG Spehar also had bilateral meetings with the Minister for Peacebuilding of South Sudan, Stephen Par Kuol, and counterparts in the African Union (AU) and the League of Arab States (LAS), the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Foreign Ministry of Egypt, and the Cairo International Center for Conflict Resolution, Peacekeeping and Peacebuilding.

    Next Week

    On Monday, 27 June, the Security Council will hear a briefing on the situation in Libya. On Wednesday, Special Envoy of the Secretary-General Geir O. Pedersen will brief the Council on Syria. On Thursday, 30 June, the Council will discuss non-proliferation.

    Excellencies,

    Ladies and Gentlemen,

     

    Let me begin by thanking the Government of Mongolia for hosting the Ulaanbaatar Dialogue at this vital time. The United Nations highly values its partnership with Mongolia, and we appreciate your initiative to convene this important meeting.

     

    Our world is facing multiple crises and threats that transcend national borders. The global peace and security landscape is becoming more complex and contested.

     

    Northeast Asia is facing rising tensions on the Korean Peninsula, increased geopolitical competition, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters, and environmental degradation. At the same time, the region is on the leading edge of technology and the search for solutions for the future.

     

    I applaud Mongolia’s initiative – through the Ulaanbaatar Dialogue – to complement existing security and coordination mechanisms and explore ways to bridge any gaps.

     

    I am particularly encouraged by the inclusion of young voices here today. The visions, insights and solutions offered by young people will be crucial as Northeast Asian countries confront current and future challenges.

     

    This afternoon, the United Nations is co-organizing a session on the Youth, Peace and Security agenda. It is part of our joint efforts to support regional youth engagement, including in high-level policy fora on security issues. 

     

    This objective is very much a part of the Secretary General’s priorities outlined in his report, Our Common Agenda. I look forward to the ideas and recommendations of our young colleagues.

     

    We will all benefit greatly from a future-oriented Northeast Asia that is more integrated, engaged, and assumes greater responsibilities.

     

    As the region continues to be a center of economic dynamism and influence, I count on your courage and political will to promote peace, inclusion, and sustainable development.

    Thank you.
