United Nations – The need for UN Peacekeeping has never been greater. Today’s UN Peacekeeping missions are unprecedented in scale of operation and scope of mandates with over 125,000 peacekeepers deployed in four continents.

Recognizing the importance of UN Peacekeeping to international peace and security, on 28 September 2015 the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and U.S. President Barack Obama join over 50 heads of state and government representatives to announce significant new contributions.

The Leaders’ Summit on Peacekeeping is co-chaired by Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Japan, The Netherlands, Pakistan, Rwanda, Uruguay and the United States.
