Current and Past Recommendations to the UN Security Council (Monthly Action Points)
Sudan – Sudan, Abyei & Darfur (March 2012)
The Council is expected to review the SG report on the UN Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA) as per SCR 1990 (2011) and 2032 (2011). Security Council members should request information on current efforts to monitor human rights, as per SCR 1990 (OP10), and should particularly inquire into information on women’s human rights. The Council should ensure UNISFA has the necessary resources to ensure effective protection of civilians, to disrupt possible attacks against local communities in line with UNISFA’s mandate, and to ensure that security is restored to facilitate the return of the displaced population. All relevant parties should account for individuals still missing since the start of the violence, including women and children. Given the growing challenge of humanitarian access the Council should inquire as to contingency plans to protect women and girls, especially displaced and disabled populations.
