International peace and security

In 2000, the United Nations took action to reform its peacekeeping activities by laying secure and adequate foundations for an effective peacekeeping structure, while providing daily direction and support to the operations in the field. In March, the Secretary-General established a highlevel panel to undertake a major review of UN peace and security activities and recommend ways to ensure that future peacekeeping operations were more effective. The panel’s recommendations, contained in what was known as the "Brahimi report", after the panel’s chairman, Lakhdar Brahimi, were endorsed by the General Assembly in December. In October, the Secretary-General presented a number of practical measures, including resource requirements, to support the broad objectives identified by the panel.
