A total of 52 peace operations were conducted in 2010, taking place in 33 locations. One new peace operation was launched in 2010, the European Union (EU) Training Mission in Somalia (EUTM). Two peace operations closed during 2010, the EU Mission in Support of Security Sector Reform in Guinea-Bissau (EU SSR Guinea-Bissau) and the United Nations Mission in the Central African Republic and Chad (MINURCAT), making 2010 the second consecutive year in which the total number of operations fell, and the third year in which the total fell during the period 2001–10 (see figure 3A.1). However, the upward trend in the total number of personnel deployed to peace operations continued to gather pace, with totals increasing by 20 per cent between 2009 and 2010 to reach 262 842 (see figure 3A.2). Of these, 91 per cent were military personnel, 6 per cent were civilian police and 3 per cent were civilian staff.3 The known total cost of peace operations was $8.9 billion, a 2 per cent decrease from the record high of $9.1 billion in 2009.4
