The United Nations Peacebuilding Support Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNOGBIS) was established by the United Nations Security Council in its Resolution 1233 in April 1999 to facilitate the general election and implementation of the Abuja Accord.[1]

This followed a ceasefire agreement signed in Praia on 26 August 1998[2] reaffirmed on 1 November (known as the Abuja Accord) with the promise of elections[3] with an additional protocol arranging for a government of national unity signed on 15 December[4] and strengthened by United Nations Security Council Resolution 1216.[5] The agreement was overseen by ECOMOG and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

The mandate of UNOGBIS was extended following the 1999 elections into the post-electoral period.[6]

There have been numerous reports submitted and meetings of the United Nations Security Council over the years.

The mandate of UNOGBIS was extended and revised in 2004.[7]

Concerns relating to drug trafficking from Latin America were raised[8] as well as financial stability.[9]

It was replaced by the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNIOGBIS) in 2009.
