UN Engagement Platoon (UNEP-1)



The UN Engagement Platoon (UNEP-1) course, the first of its kind, was introduced by the Peace Operations Training Department (PKT) at the Centre for International and Peace Stability (CIPS) under the United Nations Reinforced Training Package (RTP). The course took place from July 10 to July 21, 2023. This course placed a significant emphasis on ensuring the safety of vulnerable and at-risk populations. UN engagement platoons served as the central force structures in UN peacekeeping missions, playing a pivotal role in establishing a secure and safe environment. The development of engagement capabilities was crucial to effectively bolster the achievement of the mission’s objectives and commitments.



The objective of the UNEP-1 course was to cultivate meaningful involvement with gender in conflicted communities and advocate for the integration of individuals at all levels and roles within peacekeeping missions to achieve long-term sustainable peace.
