UNRCCA Mission Statement
The goal of the United Nations Regional Center for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia (UNRCCA) is to assist and support the governments of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan in building their conflict prevention capacities through enhanced dialogue, confidence building measures and establishing genuine partnership in order to respond to existing threats and emerging challenges in the Central Asian region.
Main Areas of Work
The United Nations Regional Centre for Preventive Diplomacy for Central Asia (UNRCCA) is a special political mission of the United Nations Organization established at the initiative of the governments of the five Central Asian countries. While initiating this proposal, the Governments took into consideration the multiple threats that face Central Asia, including international terrorism and extremism, drug trafficking, organized crime and environmental degradation.
The Regional Centre for Preventive Diplomacy as a unique political structure of the United Nations is a platform for the dialogue and exchange of opinions between states of the Central Asia with a view to helping them seek and develop mutually acceptable solutions.
First of all, the role of the Centre is to promote a dialogue between the governments of the Central Asian countries in finding solutions for emerging problems and eliminating potential threats; to keep regular contacts with international organizations, operating in the region, to stimulate their peace-making efforts and initiatives; to cooperate with other UN Agencies, working in the field of sustainable development and conflict prevention.
In its activity UN Centre follows a principle of impartiality. It does not insist on application of already existing solutions of the problems, but tries to facilitate elaboration of local models, adapted to the specifics of the Central Asian region. Such approach ensures that the solutions found will prove to be of long-term and sustainable nature.
