In view of Resolution 1778, the MINURCAT Civil and Political Affairs Section seeks to harmonize the activities of the different sections and units within the mission and acts as the MINURCAT focal point for CONAFIT (Commission Nationale d’Appui à la Force Internationale au Tchad), the organisation put in place by the Chadian government to liaise with the UN and EUFOR. In addition, the Civil and Political Affairs Section contributes to the creation of adequate conditions for the voluntary return and social reintegration of IDPs, supports the restoration of state authority, and engages in community reconciliation activities.
Main activities of the Civil and Political Affairs Section include participation in local-level meetings, organization of workshops on conflict resolution and peace building, promotion of confidence-building initiatives to facilitate the voluntary return of IDPs. The Section also administers Quick Impact Projects (QIPs) for the different sections and units within MINURCAT. QIPs are small projects (limited to USD 25,000) designed to provide immediate action on selected themes within the MINURCAT mandate.
The Political and Civil Affairs Section is composed of 15 international staff, 2 national staff, and 3 UN Volunteer. Staff members are deployed throughout the area of operations in Abeche, Goz Beida, Farchana and Iriba, with a liaison office in N’Djamena.
