As you may know, a robust international peacekeeping force is one of the most crucial steps to saving Darfur.

However, a central question has been: what should a "robust" force look like?
1. A strong mandate to protect civilians.

2. Management of the mission by the United Nations.

3. A sufficient level of troops and police drawn from around the world.

4. Mobile resources and equipment needed for quick response across Darfur's challenging terrain.

5. A strong emphasis on civilian and humanitarian needs.

6. Sufficient funding from the international community.

Now is the time to take action. For more information, go here.
