Security situation in Darfur
The security situation in Darfur is relatively calm, but remains unpredictable.

UNAMID military forces have conducted 94 patrols, including confidence-building, escort and firewood, among others, in 70 villages and internally displaced persons (IDP) camps. UNAMID police advisors also conducted 160 patrols in villages and IDP camps.

Acting JSR of UNAMID has initial meeting with AU Chairperson

The Acting Joint Special Representative of the AU-UN Mission in Darfur (UNAMID), Henry K. Anyidoho, today met Chairperson of the African Union, Jean Ping,
in Addis Ababa to discuss the work of the Mission.

During this first meeting, Acting JSR Anyidoho and Chairperson Ping also considered UNAMID’s achievements and challenges, as it supports the peace process in Darfur, against the background of initiatives aimed at putting an end to the conflict.

Earlier in the day, the Acting Joint Special Representative attended an African Union mediation capacity building meeting being held this week at the African Union premises. UNAMID is intimately involved with regional capacity building efforts in collaboration with the African Union Peace and Security Council.

Henry Anyidoho took up his present post in September 2009 to succeed former Joint Special Representative Rodolphe Adada.
