Current and Past Recommendations to the UN Security Council (Monthly Action Points)
Sudan – Sudan, Abyei & Darfur (October 2011)
The Council will hold a briefing and consultations on the UNISFA report, as per SCR 1990 (2011). Aerial bombardments continue, following the displacement of 150,000-200,000 persons since June 2011. In discussions on Sudan and South Kordofan, the Council should: call for an immediate ceasefire, and for humanitarian access, per the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA); and conduct a fact-finding mission in South Kordofan to assess the humanitarian and human rights consequences. Discussions on the situation in Sudan will be held also in the context of UNMISS. The Council should: ensure appropriate support for TCCs / PCCs in their pre-deployment training of troops, specifically on how to best operationalize the women, peace and security and protection elements of the UNMISS mandate; and support expert capacity in the mission regarding early warning and conflict prevention, and to monitor and report on human rights threats against civilians.
