In 2022 the United Nations, regional organizations and alliances, and ad hoc coalitions of states carried out 64 multilateral peace operations in 38 countries/territories across the world—the highest number of operations in the past decade (see figure 3.1). This was one more operation than in 2021.1 Over the past decade the number of peace operations has remained relatively stable but, more recently, these operations have increasingly taken place in sub-Saharan Africa (see figure 3.2). Of the 64 operations, 24 were located in this region, with 18 in Europe, 14 in the Middle East and North Africa, 5 in Asia and 3 in the Americas (see table 3.1). The Central African Republic (CAR) has continued to be the country hosting the largest number of peace operations, with five operations on its territory, and deploying an average of 16 128 personnel per month in 2022. On 31 December 2022 it deployed 17 487 personnel and ranked second in terms of the number of personnel deployed to peace operations, only behind Somalia (20 685 personnel).
