DPKOÂ (created in 1948) provides political and executive direction around the world and maintains contact with the Security Council, troop and financial contributors, and parties to the conflict in the implementation of Security Council mandates. AÂ UN peacekeeping operationÂ consists of military, police and civilian personnel, who work to deliver security, political and early peace building support.
AMISOMÂ (African Union Mission in Somalia) is mandated to conduct Peace Support Operations in Somalia to stabilize the situation in the country in order to create conditions for the conduct of Humanitarian activities and an immediate take over by the United Nations (UN).
The United Nations Support Office for AMISOM (UNSOA) is a field support operation led by the United Nations Department of Field Support (DFS). UN Security Council Resolution 1863 (2009) provides UNSOA with a mandate to deliver a logistics capacity support package toÂ AMISOM.
In that context,Â DAC AviationÂ (EA) LimitedÂ has been contracted since January 18thÂ 2013, to provide air support to UNSOA/ AMISOM, with a 50 seat aircraft, 5Y-MOC (Dash 8-315) for 2 years. After a few weeks of operation, the UNSOA already expressed their great satisfaction with DAC Aviationâ€™s performance and professionalism.
