I. Introduction

  1. The present report is submitted pursuant to Security Council resolution 2458 (2019), by which the Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNIOGBIS) until 28 February 2020 and requested that I report every six months on the situation in Guinea-Bissau and on progress made in the implementation of the resolution. The report also provides an update on key political, security, human rights, gender and socioeconomic developments in Guinea-Bissau since my report of 19 August 2019 (S/2019/664), as well as on progress in the United Nations transition process ahead of the drawdown and closure of UNIOGBIS.

  2. During the reporting period, I appointed Rosine Sori-Coulibaly (Burkina Faso) as my Special Representative for Guinea-Bissau and Head of UNIOGBIS, effective 25 August. She assumed her duties in Bissau on 5 September. I also appointed Mamadou Diallo (Guinea) as my Deputy Special Representative for Guinea-Bissau and Resident Coordinator, effective 14 October. He assumed his duties in Bissau on 9 November.
