The mission is undergoing reconfiguration and will go through the process of an eventual drawdown.
According to the text of the resolution, the UN Security Council will decide on the future actions regarding the mission’s drawdown and exit after 1 March 2020.
The resolution also stipulates that the UN Security Council will adopt a new document at the same time to further address the issue of UNAMID’s presence in the region.
In June, UN Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Pierre Lacroix said that the mission intends to exit Darfur by 30 June 2020.
