Back Bangladesh Peacekeeping Operations Contingent Commanders Course

The purpose of this event is to deliver a Peacekeeping Operations Contingent Commanders Course (in May, 2017), designed to prepare potential commanders in the roles and responsibilities of contingent commanders, battalion commanders and sector commanders in complex peacekeeping operations for UN and other multinational operations. This training was coordinated and agreed upon bilaterally by the US and Bangladeshi governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
If this course does not occur it would diminish Bangladesh’s capacity to train future deploying peacekeepers, specifically peacekeeping contingent commanders, to serve in UN Peacekeeping Missions and may negatively affect future US-BGD cooperation. Bangladesh is currently the number one 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.
