Ines Alvarez's llamas in Bolivia. - A project that was co-funded by #IFAD, the International Fund for Agricultural Development, helped traditional herders protect the environment and make sustainable profits from their llamas and other camelids, especially by providing training in nutrition and animal husbandry practices.

The llamas were treated for parasites and received vitamins to keep them in optimal health.

More than 850 Mongolian peacekeepers were awarded the United Nations Medal for their commitment and service to the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) during a ceremony in Bentiu last week.

Among other things, the peacekeeepers rescued 50 internally displaced people from attempted abduction, prevented the harassment of women and children at a nearby farm, and defended the Protection of Civilian site when a large crowd of youths tried to breach the perimeter.

The 41 female members of the Mongolian peacekeeping team (pictured) were praised for their important work to empower women in local communities, provide a greater sense of security for women and act as role models.

Since 2003, approximately 14,000 Mongolian peacekeepers have served at UN Peacekeeping missions around the world.
