2014.06 Guidelines on Coordinating with the EU during the Planning of UN Missions and EU Civilian Missions and Military Operations
The aim of this document is to define modalities for coordination between the EU and the UN during the assessment and planning phases of their respective missions / operations. It includes principles and practical measures for coordination throughout these phases, as foreseen in the UN's Integrated Assessment and Planning (IAP) Policy and the EU's Crisis Management Procedures (CMP). It also draws on the lessons learned from the After Action Reviews on UN-EU Planning for EUFOR Tchad/RCA (2008) and for EUFOR DRC (2006), and well as from the practical experience of UN-EU cooperation on planning for Mali. This document focuses on situations where the UN and the EU are stepping up their activities in a country in a post-crisis context, in particular through the potential deployment of respective missions. It takes account of the fact that such close coordination is relevant in a variety of scenarios, including where: i) both UN and EU are setting up a new mission / operation; ii) a new EU effort is to complement an existing UN mission’s effort; iii) the UN or the EU takes over the engagement from the other; iv) the EU will provide a bridging mission /operation until the UN takes over; v) either party seeks support from the other. These Guidelines replace the previous Guidelines for Joint UN-EU planning applicable to existing UN field missions of 13 June 2008.
