As a UN Logistics Officer, what suggestions would you have to improve services of the UN Logistics in peacekeeping missions?

First, maintaining communications, coordination, and cooperation in a peacekeeping mission is vital. We should also sensitize the Troop Contributing Countries and other stakeholders to read and understand the Memorandum of Understanding/Statement of Unit Requirement and other relevant documents that spell out how the mission will be conducted.
