The 60 multilateral peace operations that were active in 2018 were not spread evenly across the different regions of the world (see table 3.1). There were 24 operations in Africa, 18 in Europe, 10 in the Middle East, 5 in Asia and Oceania and 3 in the Americas. Africa was host not only to the largest number of multilateral peace operations, but also to most of the largest ones (see section I). This is reflected in the number of personnel serving in peace operations in each region. It is estimated that 72 per cent of the 144 791 personnel deployed worldwide on 31 December 2018 were part of missions in Africa. In contrast, only 6 per cent were deployed in Europe, even though it hosted the second largest number of peace operations after Africa.
