WAY FORWARD

The Triangular Partnership Programme (TPP) will increase its geographic scope, course offering and delivery methods and enhance the overall impact of its peacekeeping training and capacity building efforts. It will also strengthen the provision of operational support to peacekeepers through the expansion of telemedicine to more peace operations. The TPP will further deepen its collaboration with regional organizations such as the African Union (AU) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and coordinate with internal and external UN partners to identify and address new, emerging and underserved capability and operational support gaps. New areas currently under development include courses in horizontal and vertical engineering, occupational safety, airstrip maintenance, and environmental management. 

The TPP will also adopt a data-driven approach to track progress, measure outcomes and establish a mechanism to address ongoing improvements to training design and delivery.  Finally, the TPP will engage with Member States directly to increase the number of women peacekeepers by facilitating the participation of more women trainees in TPP courses; and increase capable French speaking peacekeepers for francophone peacekeeping setting by offering more courses in French language.
