United Nations Mission To Support The Hudaydah Agreement (Unmha)
On 16 January 2019, the Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution S/2019/2452 authorizing the creation of a new special political mission, the United Nations Mission in Support of the Hudaydah Agreement (UNMHA). The review showed that the Mission`s mandate remained achievable and appropriate. The composition and operational aspects of MONMNHA were also considered valid and a great deal of flexibility of application was required. In accordance with a recommendation for review, the draft resolution calls for a new UNMD review to be submitted within three months. The objective is to ensure that MONMNHA remains properly configured and mandated and to allow the Commission to make changes to its mandate as the situation evolves. 1. On this date, applicants must submit only the P-11 form (Word format) because OSESGY is not in a position to take into account a CV or CV. As a result, only applications submitted under the UN P-11 form are considered. Also, do not submit proofs such as diplomas/certificates. These documents are only requested by candidates who have passed the evaluation/interview process. On Monday, the Security Council is expected to adopt a resolution to extend the mandate of the UN Mission to Support the Hodeidah Agreement (UNMHA) by six months. An agreement on extending the mandate seemed simple.
On 5 July, the United Kingdom, author of Yemen, circulated to the members of the Council a draft text containing few amendments, including technical ones, to Resolution 2452, which established the mission. In the absence of notice, the draft resolution was subject to a procedure of silence until the morning of 10 July, when it was adopted. The draft resolution is now in blue. The mission, which oversees the city and port of Hudaydah, as well as the ports of Salif and Ra`s Issa, will continue to lead and support the Redistribution Coordination Committee to monitor the redistribution of armed forces, demining operations and the government-wide ceasefire agreement reached in Stockholm in December 2018. UNMHA will monitor compliance with the Hudaydah agreement and cooperate with them to ensure security by local forces in the city and port of Hudaydah, as well as in the ports of Salif and Ra`s Issa. Authorized personnel: Up to 75 observers and additional staff with a range of quality, administrative and security expertise Last month, the Secretary-General wrote to the members of the Council to conduct a review of UNMS. The review documents difficulties in setting up the mission, such as the operating environment in Hodeidah and the Houthi authorities` slow approval of visas for mission personnel and clearances for equipment, such that UNMHA “has just maintained its initial operational capacity to deliver on its mandate.” In accordance with the Secretary-General`s proposal of 31 December 2018 for the establishment of the mission, UNMHA will have up to 75 observers and other support staff. The draft resolution calls on the Secretary-General to send the mission quickly and to include the term “complete” in the text, which seems to implicitly indicate delays in the commissioning of unsealed CNUHA. The review further covers the challenges of the texting the broad framework provided by the Hodeidah agreement into actionable plans for its implementation, which has required ongoing negotiations between the parties overoverby the RCC chair and UN Special Envoy Martin Griffiths. This implies the need to reach an agreement on the local security forces that will secure the city and the ports before they begin to redistribute the forces of the city of Hodeidah. It warns that even after an agreement on outstanding issues, full implementation, including the evacuation of military gatherings and mines, will result in a long-term commitment.
