ACCORD conducts second conflict management training for UNAMID

on . Posted in Peacebuilding

Due to the relevance and success of the first TfP/ACCORD Conflict Management for Peacekeepers and Peacebuilders Course for the African Union - United Nations Hybrid Operation in Darfur (UNAMID), held from 3 -5 June 2009, the Chief of the UNAMID Civil Affairs Division requested a second training course for the new intake of Civil Affairs Officers. The Programme thus conducted a second in-mission Conflict Management course for UNAMID Civil Affairs Officers, most of whom fall within the ‘National Professional Officers’ category, from 12-14 August 2009 in Kampala Uganda.

The aim of the course is inline with the Programme's objective to train African civilian personnel for peace operations. One key outcome of such in-mission trainings is that the knowledge and skills imparted are directly relevant and utilised by mission personnel. This avoids the training-deployment dilemma that currently exists within the training community.
