The number of personnel deployed to peace operations increased by 16 per cent over 2008 to reach 219 278 by the end of 2009, 89 per cent of whom were military personnel and 11 per cent civilian staff. With no new operations in 2009, the increase in the number of personnel deployed was due to troop reinforcement for existing operations, most significantly for the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan. ISAF was nearly four times larger than the next largest operation, and the number of ISAF troops (84 146) exceeded the total number deployed to the 12 UN peace operations with troops (83 089).
