on . Posted in Peacekeeping

Ms. Yvonne Kasumba, Senior Programme Officer for ACCORD's Training for Peace Programme, will participate in a “Peacekeeping Training Support and Coordination” workshop in Addis Ababa from 24-26 April, hosted by the African Peace Support Training Association (APSTA).

The main aim of the workshop will be to deliberate on the coordination and harmonization of the African Standby Force (ASF) capacity building training. In particular, this will focus on the development of a coordination mechanism that will enable APSTA to assist the African Union (AU) Peace Support Operations Division (PSOD) with the harmonization of the ASF training approaches among the Regional Economic Commissions (RECs), and how best to coordinate and harmonize the ASF training programme with various external capacity building initiatives in Africa.
