"We are moving" to enact necessary reforms to UN peacekeeping in 2016, says the top official in charge of operations.

Hervé Ladsous, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO), said that 2015 had been a very important year for his team, with the publication of a major review on its work, in June.

That High-Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations recommended a shift towards political solutions, and more flexible operations in the field.

Matthew Wells asked Mr Ladsous to highlight the reform process, moving forward.
