‘The UN’s Precarious Financial Situation Places Missions and People at Risk’

This recent article published on the IPI Global Observatory website notes that the UN is facing a “cash crunch”, and that the UN’s core peacekeeping and regular budgets are suffering. While the challenge is not new, the author notes that the ongoing trend of late payments is putting UN peacekeeping operations under significant strain. The author instead suggests that Member States may need to start focusing on ways to find agreement on changes relating to peacekeeping.
