    While in RL the UNSC has just voted to extend the mandate of UNAMID (African Union-United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur) by another year, I thought it might be interesting if the MUN took it into our own hands and perhaps formulated another version of the resolution that created it, perhaps changing the numbers or their actual powers. Anyone interested?

    On a side note, they've also extended the mandate for the Cote d'Ivoire, would anyone like to take a look there?

    UNIDO, African Union Commission to launch Internet database to galvanize business development in Africa.

    The new Investment Monitoring Platform will provide data and information on the characteristics of foreign and domestic investors, as well as their motivations, actions, perceptions, intentions, and impact. It will allow country ranking through investor evaluation and performance. It will also enable investors to conduct analysis and make more informed decisions, better assess business risks, and identify potential counterparts.

    FIRST BATCH OF INFANTRY TROOPS FROM BURKINA FASO JOIN AFRICAN-UN FORCE IN DARFUR

    The first infantry soldiers from Burkina Faso arrived today in Darfur to serve with the joint African Union-United Nations peacekeeping mission to the troubled Sudanese region, as more blue helmets from three other countries prepare to join the force soon as well.

    An advance party of 134 soldiers arrived in Nyala, the capital of South Darfur state, with another 133 scheduled to arrive next Tuesday, according to the mission (known as UNAMID). The remaining members of the infantry battalion – totalling more than 800 soldiers – are expected to be deployed by mid-September in El Geneina and Foro Baranga in West Darfur state.

    Today’s arrival means UNAMID now has 13,651 military personnel deployed across the region, or nearly 70 per cent of the authorized number of staff under the 2007 Security Council resolution setting up the force.

    The mission also reported today that more troops from Ethiopia, Tanzania and Egypt are expected to be deployed in Darfur later this month, further boosting its strength.

    The Security Council authorized the deployment of UNAMID to try to quell fighting and protect civilians in Darfur, where an estimated 300,000 have been killed and some 2.7 million others displaced from their homes since fighting erupted in 2003, pitting Government forces and allied Janjaweed militiamen against rebel groups.
    I would prefer that this did develop into some degree of debate...any comments, any offers of a resolution...?
