Dpko ocha brahimi report
DPKO – OCHA: Brahimi Report

- UNDP, OCHA, UNHCR, OHCHR, DPI and several other departments, agencies , funds and programmes have an increasingly important role to play in planning for any future operation, especially complex operation, and need to be formally included in the planning process.

( -> Integrated Mission Task Force concept)

Dpko ocha omnibus report
DPKO – OCHA: Omnibus Report

* The relationship between DPKO and OCHA is vital and must be improved - -

* Peacekeeping Operations should be mandated, designed and resourced to support -- humanitarian action –

* Close cooperation between DPKO and OCHA at all stages of mission design and planning

* OCHA and DPKO mutually support each other - - established humanitarian agencies can be a source of information and support to new PK-missions - -

Dpko ocha omnibus report cont
DPKO – OCHA: Omnibus Report (cont)

* The nature and extent of cooperation - - in the field must depend upon the local context

* There may be places where UN humanitarian actors are incorporated into a PK-mission - -

* -- and others where a clear separation is vital –

OCHAs role is to act as bridge –
