This event supports delivery of CCMR Peacekeeping program USAFRICOM ZAMBATT 4 Pre-deployment Training (PDT) Cycle Final Planning Conference (FPC) to members of the Zambian Armed Forces and a select number of international military officers. This event (MASL 273013) is regularly conducted, on a recurring basis, by CCMR throughout the Asia-Pacific and Africa areas. This training was coordinated and agreed upon bilaterally by the US and Zambia governments during the Bilateral Defense Discussions.
If this course does not occur it would diminish Zambia's capacity to deploy peacekeepers, specifically, Zambia Battalion 4 (ZAMBATT 4) rotation into the United Nations Peacekeeping Mission to the Central African Republic. This would negatively affect future US-Zambia peacekeeping cooperation. Zambia is currently a significant 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.
