As in preceding years, the largest concentration of peace operations in 2011 was in Africa: there were 16 operations in the region, most under the command of the United Nations, with a total of approximately 87 000 personnel, of which 83 000 were troops and civilian police and the remaining 4000 were civilian staff (see table 3.1). The number of operations deployed in Africa was unchanged from 2010. While three operations closed in 2011, three of the four new operations—the UN Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA), the UN Mission in the Republic of South Sudan (UNMISS) and the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL)—are located in Africa. The deployment of UNISFA and UNMISS, which have significant military components, did not lead to a significant increase in personnel numbers as the two new operations in Sudan and South Sudan were mostly composed of personnel transferred from the UN Mission in the Sudan (UNMIS) after its closure in July 2011.
