The Special Committee on Peacekeeping Operations, also known as the C34, is a subsidiary body of the Fourth Committee of the United Nations General Assembly. A unique, multilateral body consisting of 157 Member States, the C34 brings together a wide range of peacekeeping stakeholders, including the Permanent Members of the Security Council, troop- and police-contributing countries, leading financial contributors to the Peacekeeping Budget, several host states and others. The C34 is mandated to carry out a comprehensive review of all issues relating to peacekeeping operations. In this role, it makes recommendations, by way of annual reports that are adopted by consensus, to peacekeeping stakeholders. In response, the Secretary-General publishes an annual report on the implementation of these recommendations, outlining the measures taken by the Secretariat. The interactive window below lists the latest recommendations of the Special Committee. By clicking on one recommendation, you can find the relevant implementation status.
