This project is a course regularly offered as part of Navy Security Cooperation Programs, and is identified by course MASL P279389. The purpose of this event is to deliver a Bangladesh United Nations Civil-Military Cooperation (UN-CIMIC) Course (in July, 2017), designed to prepare potential staff officers in the roles and responsibilities of contingent and Force Command UN-CIMIC Officers in complex peacekeeping operations for UN and other multinational operations. This training was coordinated and agreed upon bilaterally by the US and Bangladesh governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
If this course does not occur it would diminish Bangladesh’s capacity to train future deploying peacekeepers, specifically UN-CIMIC officers, to serve in UN Peacekeeping Missions and may negatively affect future US-MYS cooperation. Bangladesh is currently a major contributor of peacekeepers to UN Missions worldwide. There is potential that failure to support this training could adversely impact force generation for potential new UN missions or extend already deployed contingents in place due to inadequate replacements available.
The course is pre-coordinated in detail and supported by the US Embassy in Dhaka, Bangladesh and United States Pacific Command.
