In 2012, as in previous years, the largest concentration of peace operations was in Africa. Two of the three new operations during the year—the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Mission in Guinea-Bissau (ECOMIB) and the European Union (EU) Capacity Building Mission in Niger (EUCAP Sahel Niger)—were located in Africa. There were 17 operations deployed in the region, 9 of them under United Nations command—a smaller proportion than in recent years (see table 2.1). Nonetheless, UN operations accounted for about 75 000 of the 94 000 personnel deployed in Africa. About 90 000 of the personnel deployed in the region were troops. Although the African Union (AU)/United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID) decreased its personnel size by more than 2000, overall personnel deployments in the region increased due to the expansion of the AU Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) and further deployments to the UN Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA) and the UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS), both of which opened in 2011 and continued to expand in 2012.1
