Peacekeeping Operations (PKO)
Program Description | FMF Budget Figures
- The Administration is requesting $134 million in FY 2001 to provide voluntary support for international peacekeeping activities. PKO funds promote increased involvement of regional organizations in conflict resolution and help leverage support for multinational efforts where no formal cost sharing mechanism is available. (Funds to cover the U.S. share of UN-assessed peacekeeping operations are requested through the Contributions for International Peacekeeping Activities account.)
- Funding is provided for Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) peacekeeping activities in the Balkans as well as OSCE preventive diplomacy missions elsewhere in Europe and the NIS ($60 million).
- Support for the Multinational Force and Observers (MFO) in the Sinai ($16 million) and the Israel-Lebanon Monitoring Group ($1 million) is continued.
- This request provides $20 million for the African Crisis Response Initiative (ACRI) to train and equip select African countries to develop peacekeeping capabilities. It also includes $15 million to help support initiatives in Africa that promote regional security and stability and help prevent limited crises from becoming larger and more dangerous problems that could threaten U.S. interests.
- The PKO request includes $4 million to continue funding for the International Civilian Mission for Support in Haiti (MICAH) which provides technical assistance in the areas of professionalization of the Haitian National Police and administration of justice and human rights.
- For FY 2001, the Administration is also seeking $18 million to support ongoing bilateral and multilateral efforts in East Timor, including continued U.S. civilian police participation in the UN Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET) mission.
