You can access the final report of the 10-11 May 2019 Unarmed Civilian Protection (UCP) Retreat here. I hope you will find it reflects the warm spirit of inquiry and discussion that we had as well as the enthusiasm that was generated for strengthening awareness and practice of UCP in conflict settings. In that regard, we were so pleased to see that seven Member States included UCP in their statements during the Security Council's Open Debate on the Protection of Civilians (POC) in May.

 The Retreat report highlights the main takeaways, opportunities and next steps that can be taken to raise awareness, offer training, and improve collaboration and implementation.

You can protect civilians who are living in or fleeing violent conflict. Your contribution will transform the world's response to conflict.
