Completion of MINURCAT

MINURCAT completed its mandate on 31 December 2010, in accordance with Security Council resolution 1923 (2010) and at the request of the Chadian Government, which had pledged full responsibility for protecting civilians on its territory. Following its withdrawal, the UN country team and the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office in the Central African Republic (BINUCA) remained in the country to continue to work for the benefit of the Chadian people.


Reporting to the Security Council in December, the Secretary-General said “MINURCAT has been an unusual and unique United Nations peacekeeping operation in that it was devoted solely to contributing to the protection of civilians, without an explicit political mandate. It has gone through the stages of planning, deployment and withdrawal in the short span of less than four years, enduring adversities in each.”


For more on the implementation of the MINURCAT’s mandate, achievements and the lessons learned, please see the Secretary-General’s final report S/2010/611 of 1 December 2010.

UNV Project Rehabilitates Iriba High School

The United Nations Volunteers (UNVs) in Chad have developed a project for the rehabilitation of Iriba High School, the only one in the department of Kobé. It was built in 1996 as a donation from the Département des Hauts de Seine in France and has since then never been renovated. The UNVs decided to undertake the project as part of the UNV mandate to Volunteer for Development (V4D) in an attempt to remedy to the poor learning/teaching conditions of the students and teachers. Local authorities as well as the Inspector of Education of the department of Kobé welcomed the project and were wholly involved in its implementation. The rehabilitation project has finally reached completion and the high school will be inaugurated on 7 May 2010.
