Pernille Dahler Kardel arrived in Lebanon in December to take over as acting United Nations special coordinator for Lebanon just ahead of what will be a crucial few months for the country.It also sparked a reaffirmation of world's attention through the high-level meeting of the International Support Group for Lebanon in Paris in December.Kardel has dived into the preparations for three planned conferences this spring, two of which have Lebanon at the heart, expected to be held in quick succession in Rome, Paris and Brussels.While Kardel was careful to note that no plans are set in stone, a key component of the Rome conference is to bolster the Army's capability in the south of the country and ensure it is the "only armed force present".Kardel said there are positive indications that Lebanon is on the right track.
