Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI)
The GPOI program helps build sustainable and indigenous peacekeeping training capacities in US partner countries so they can better contribute to United Nations (UN) and other regional peacekeeping operations. GPOI-funded activities particularly concentrate on the establishment and strengthening of partner countries training infrastructures, focusing on both military troops and formed police units, where appropriate.
In addition, the GPOI program helps to enhance coordination and collaboration between various US and other contributor countries’ diplomatic and assistance efforts, to include providing support to deploying units (e.g. technical assistance and pre-deployment training).
