The Quick Impact Projects (QIP) Unit was established to ensure the effective management of the QIP Programme in accordance with policies and guidelines issued by DPKO/DFS and UNMIL.

The budget of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) has been provided with funding designed to finance projects that are used to establish and build confidence in the mission, its mandate, and the peace process, thereby improving the environment for effective mandate implementation. 

Since the inception of the Mission, projects worth over US$9 Million, targeting the provision of basic social services; restoration of state authority and the rule of law; as well as support to vulnerable groups through income-generating activities, etc, have been identified and implemented, in close  collaboration with national and local authorities, community members, and national NGOs, etc.
