In 2006, the Norwegian Government initiated the Project on Multidimensional and Integrated Peace Operations to help further institute and support an integrated approach to the implementation of Security Council mandates. This effort builds in part on the UN Integrated Missions study that was commissioned by the UN Executive Committee on Humanitarian Affairs (ECHA) in 2004. This project includes a series of seminars organized in different locations around the world, designed to consult with, take stock of the progress made so far and gather the experiences of the multitude of stakeholders involved in implementing the integrated mission concept.
