Final Report_Evaluation Mali_rev after management response_240419_Final_pdf.pdf


The Sustaining Peace in Mali and the Sahel Region through Strengthening Peacekeeping Training Capacities (Phase II) project was designed and implemented by the UNITAR Peacekeeping Training Programme in response to the positive feedback from the pilot phase I. This second phase has an overarching objective to contribute to the international and regional efforts to sustain peace in Mali and in the Sahel region as well as to strengthen the ongoing security sector reforms in the region. The project was designed in line with the overarching United Nations Policy (UNPOL) strategy as well as the donor’s strategic interests in the region. The project’s long-term objectives are to strengthen the capacities of the African1 Formed Police Units (FPUs) to better support stabilization in Mali. The project’s short-term outcome is to harmonize and standardize the knowledge base and skills required for the FPUs to properly deliver on their responsibilities and roles as part of the regional and international stabilization efforts in Mali. An indirect outcome of the project was to strengthen EMPABB’s capabilities for longer term training sustainability.
