I. Introduction

  1. The present report is submitted pursuant to Security Council resolution 1996 (2011), by which the Council established the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) for an initial period of one year and requested me to report to it on progress in the implementation of its mandate every four months. By its resolution 2057 (2012), the Council extended the Mission’s mandate until 15 July 2013 and requested that I continue to provide trimesterly updates on the following: deployment of all Mission elements; force generation; implementation of the protection of civilians strategy; Mission benchmarks for mandate implementation; United Nations system support to peacebuilding tasks; and cooperation with regional and international partners in addressing the threat posed by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). The present report provides an update on these aspects and on developments in South Sudan since my report of 8 November (S/2012/820), including events up to 8 March 2013.
