United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan UNAMA Charity Profile
UNAMA was originally established on 28 March 2002 through Security Council resolution 1401, to help implement the Bonn Agreement. The Agreement established an interim Afghan government following the fall of the Taliban and prescribed the drafting of a new constitution and the holding of general elections. UNAMA was also mandated to manage all humanitarian, relief, recovery and reconstruction activities.
UNAMA is a political mission, directed and supported by the United Nations Department of Peacekeeping Operations. As an ‘integrated’ mission, UNAMA has two main pillars, one dealing with development and humanitarian issues, and the other handling political matters. The mission has some 1,300 staff, the vast majority of whom (around 80 percent) are Afghan nationals.
