On 10 April, the Security Council, by its resolution 2149 (2104), established the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) for an initial period until 30 April 2015 and requested the Secretary-General to subsume BINUCA in the new mission from the date of adoption of that resolution. It further requested the Secretary-General to ensure a seamless transition from BINUCA to MINUSCA.
It decided that, as of 15 September 2014, MINUSCA will initially comprise of 10,000 military personnel, including 240 military observers and 200 staff officers and 1,800 police personnel, including 1400 formed police unit personnel and 400 individual police officers, and 20 corrections officers.
The swift deployments of MISCA and Operation Sangaris forces proved critical to saving the lives of civilians and preventing an even greater tragedy in the Central African Republic. However, given the scale and geographic breadth of the crisis, the security requirements on the ground far exceeded the capabilities and the number of international troops deployed. Violence and widespread human rights violations continued to take place throughout the country despite their presence. They also lacked the civilian components to adequately protect civilians under imminent threat or tackle the root causes of the conflict.Visit United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA)
