UN-CMCoord Support Missions to Mali

UN CMCoord Mission to École de la Paix, Bamako

From 2 to 13 July 2017, two CMCS staff members worked with the Ecole de Maintien de la Paix (EMP) in Bamako, Mali. The EMP is one of three key peacekeeping training centres in West Africa, training blue helmets and police on a regional level to perform in peace operations. Together with the EMP, CMCS re-designed the UN-CIMIC Training Course for peacekeepers, harmonizing it with international training standards as stipulated by the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO). DPKO New York will conduct an on-site review of the course in autumn to certify the UN-CIMIC Course for formal UN recognition. This project will have a direct impact on the ground, carrying humanitarian messaging to UN-CIMIC Officers prior to deployment.
