DCAF-ISSAT presented at a training course in Delhi organised by UN Women in partnership with the United Services Institute of India. DCAF-ISSAT’s contribution consisted of two presentations on:
- Conflict-Related Sexual Violence (CRSV); and,
- Early Warning Signs and Threat Analysis.
The course is designed to improve UN peacekeepers’ ability to address CRSV by familiarising peacekeepers with the concept and policy of CRSV, clarify roles and responsibilities for peacekeepers and the international community as well as host nation forces, and equip them with tools and mechanisms to proactively address and prevent CRSV in their operational environment.
The training is part of building security capacity in peacekeeping, as well as looking at skills and sustainable structure transfer to host forces. The visit also opens up a first opportunity for DCAF-ISSAT to engage with the India UN Peacekeeping Centre as part of its Peacekeeping Training Centre outreach.
