The strategic deployment stocks (SDS) were established in 2002 with the adoption of resolution 56/292 of 27 June 2002 to support the rapid deployment of a peacekeeping operation by providing equipment for a minimum operational capability. They have also been drawn upon to support the deployment of special political missions.

SDS are managed by the United Nations Logistics Base in Brindisi, Italy.
