The present report has been prepared pursuant to General Assembly resolution 60/180 and Security Council resolution 1645 (2005), in which the Peacebuilding Commission was requested to submit an annual report to the Assembly for an annual debate and review. The report will also be submitted to the Council, pursuant to its resolution 1646 (2005), for an annual debate. The report covers the fifth session of the Commission, from 1 January to 31 December 2011.
On 29 October 2010, the General Assembly, in its resolution 65/7, and the Security Council, in its resolution 1947 (2010), requested the Commission to reflect in its annual reports the progress made in taking forward the relevant recommendations contained in the co-facilitators’ report entitled “Review of the United Nations peacebuilding architecture” (A/64/868-S/2010/393; the 2010 review).
The present report is the first response to that request.
