Support to the Committee on Missing Persons In Cyprus
"Determining the fate of missing persons occupies an increasingly prominent role in peacemaking, peacekeeping and post conflict peace building. Handled properly, it can build trust and promote reconciliation that are crucial for long term peace. The Committee on Missing Persons in Cyprus has been a model of successful cooperation between the Greek Cypriot and the Turkish Cypriot communities.” Ban Ki-moon, Secretary General of the United Nations.

|The European Union is the main financing source for the Committee on Missing Persons (CMP) in Cyprus, with a total contribution of EUR 22.5 million to date. The European Commission's recent agreement with the UNDP provides an additional EUR 2.6 million for the work of the CMP aiming first of all to increase the number of remains of missing persons returned to their families but also to build local capacity and trust between communities.|
