The Mission Concept : DPKO/DFS and DPA Guidelines
These Guidelines apply to all DPKO, DPA and DFS-led missions. They define and outline how a Mission Concept may be used. A Mission Concept is a statement of intent and strategy on how a field mission plans to implement its Security Council mandate, taking into account the mission’s role within the broader UN system and international context. It is a tool for senior mission management to present its vision for mandate delivery, set priorities in order of importance and sequence, and direct mission components to align and synchronize their activities, as well as inform resource allocation. A Mission Concept must be developed for new missions at start-up and must be developed or revised for all missions following a change in the mandate, a change in circumstances or the mission’s operating environment, a reconfiguration of the mission or the UN presence, key milestones in the mission’s life-cycle or any other conditions that require a reorientation of the mission.
