WAY FORWARD

The overarching strategic objective of TPP set in 2015 remains unchanged which is to support peacekeeping operations by strengthening the capacity of uniformed personnel through provision of professional training and equipment.

In the next three-year framework, 2021- 2023, TPP plans to consolidate and modernize ongoing training activities into a cohesive programme which will consist of on-site engineering, medical and C4ISR technology training complemented with new remote and blended courses in engineering works, occupational safety and environmental management. 

Working together with our partner Member States, TPP will explore opportunities to further expand its delivery methods, languages and coverage of countries and regions to better meet the evolving needs of UN peacekeeping.
