On 16 January 2019, the Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution S/2019/2452 authorizing the creation of a new special political mission, the United Nations Mission in Support of the Hudaydah Agreement (UNMHA). 1. On this date, applicants must submit only the P-11 form (Word format) because OSESGY is not in a position to take into account a CV or CV. As a result, only applications submitted under the UN P-11 form are considered. Also, do not submit proofs such as diplomas/certificates. These documents are only requested by candidates who have passed the evaluation/interview process. Last month, the Secretary-General wrote to the members of the Council to conduct a UNMDA review. The review documents difficulties in setting up the mission, such as the operating environment in Hodeidah and the Houthi authorities` slow approval of visas for mission personnel and clearances for equipment, such that UNMHA “has just maintained its initial operational capacity to deliver on its mandate.” In accordance with the Secretary-General`s proposal of 31 December 2018 for the establishment of the mission, UNMHA will have up to 75 observers and other support staff. The draft resolution calls on the Secretary-General to send the mission quickly and to include the term “complete” in the text, which seems to implicitly indicate delays in the commissioning of unsealed CNUHA. It calls on UN member states, particularly neighbouring countries, to support the implementation of the UNMC mandate. In September, the mission established a joint operation center that embeds senior liaison officers from the Houthis and Yemeni army to work with UNMHA personnel to diff tensions and address incidents that occur in the field.

In October, this was followed by the establishment of four joint observation posts along the Hodeidah city frontlines, which are manned by teams of UN, government and Houthi monitors. At recent Council meetings, Special Envoy Martin Griffiths highlighted the “increasing restrictions” on the freedom of movement of UNMD staff, including the difficulties of free exploitation in the port.
