Training for Peace Programme
The Training for Peace Programme at the KAIPTC (TfP) seeks to build self-sustaining African civilian and police peacekeeping/peace-building capacities to deliver AU and UN multi-dimensional peace support mandates. The focus of the programme is on:
1. Capacity support training for African civilian and police personnel;
2. Applied research to inform training and recruitment options; and
3. Policy development support to ECOWAS, AU, UN and national governments.
The objectives of the TfP programme are to:
• Contribute to building the capacities of African police and civilian personnel to meet the rising demands for ECOWAS, AU and UN peace operations in Africa.
• Support the development and sustainability of the civilian component of the ECOWAS Standby Force.
• Conduct relevant and effective research to support peacekeeping training and policy advice.
• Facilitate the training and recruitment of female peace support personnel (and trainers) to AU and UN mandated peace missions; and
• Support policies targeted at implementing Security Council Resolutions 1325, 1820 and the UN mandated Responsibility to Protect.
The TfP Programme at the KAIPTC is part of a network of international institutions which includes the African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD), Institute for Security Studies (ISS), The Norwegian Institute of International Affairs (NUPI) and African Civilian Standby Roster for Humanitarian and Peace Building Missions (AFDEM). TfP is fully sponsored by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and coordinated at the KAIPTC by Mr. Ferdinand Kwaku Danso (firstname.lastname@example.org)
