This proposal is funded through Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI) in accordance with the Naval Education Training Security Assistance Field Activity (NETSAFA) MASL P273013.
This event supports delivery of a CCMR Peacekeeping program USAFRICOM Zambia Battalion 4 (ZAMBATT 4) Pre-deployment Training Cycle 2 to members of the Zambian Armed Forces. This course/event (MASL 273013) is regularly conducted, on an annual basis, by CCMR throughout the Asia-Pacific and Africa areas. This training was coordinated and agreed upon bilaterally by the US and Zambian governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
If this course does not occur it would diminish Zambia's capacity to deploy peacekeepers into the United Nations peacekeeping mission in the Central African Republic, specifically, ZAMBATT 4, scheduled to deploy April 2018. This would negatively affect future US-Zambia peacekeeping cooperation. Zambia is currently a regular and well-recognized 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 Lusaka, Zambia and United States Africa Command
