Field Information Management

Records and information are important key assets of held by and used in all field operations. They are critical to make decisions and provide evidence of their daily operationsactivities. As such they should be managed with full accountability and transparency; and above all, records and information should be protected. This is  particularly true when missions are in transition. This page provides essential guidance to manage records and information during the life of field missions, including their transition. These tools can be applied in Peace Operations, Special Political Missions or Good Offices.

The United Nations Archives Records and Management Sections developed an e-learning tool for anyone who wants to learn about the basic framework and principles for records and information management. It covers both paper or digital information assets. Basic training on records and information is available on our website and through Inspira where a certificate of completion can be issued.

We also provides records and information training sessions on demand through Microsoft Teams or Webex, particularly during mission start-up or transition.
