SIPRI Map of Multilateral Peace Operations, 2022

This map shows all multilateral peace operations that were active as of May 2022. They are complemented with all ongoing field-based UN Special Political Missions, OSCE field operations, missions and operations conducted under the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP), and multinational military operations authorized by the AU that are outside the scope of the definition of a multilateral peace operation applied by SIPRI (*). As a result, the information in the figures and charts on this map may not correspond with figures featured in other SIPRI research or infographics.

Towards an Integrated Approach to Climate Security and Peacebuilding in Somalia

Emilie Broek and Christophe M. Hodder
Climate change and its security implications are placing considerable pressures on peacebuilding efforts in Somalia. The country is currently experiencing its worst drought in over four decades, with an unprecedented fourth consecutive failed rainy season recently concluded in May 2022. Around 7.1 million Somalis (almost 50 per cent of the entire population) face food insecurity at crisis levels or worse. Over 800 000 Somalis have been displaced due to extreme drought, most of them women and children.
