The UN Triangular Partnership Project
Training for engineering personnel in Asia regions (Remote)
December 3, 2021
From December 6 to 10, Japan will conduct a remote Construction Process Management Course by instructors of Japan Self-Defense Forces (JSDF) for engineering personnel in Asian regions as part of the United Nations Triangular Partnership Project.
- The United Nations Triangular Partnership Project (TPP) is a framework for cooperation among the United Nations, supporting member states including Japan and troop-contributing countries of UN peacekeeping to address the issue of the lack of capabilities and skills of peacekeeping personnel. Japan has contributed to the promotion of the TPP by dispatching JSDF personnel as instructors to conduct training in the fields of engineering (facilities) and medicine for peacekeeping personnel from Africa and Asian countries. Japan announced its support at the First Leader’s Summit on Peacekeeping held at the UN Headquarters in 2014.
- This Construction Process Management Course is the first remote project conducted by Japan within the framework of the TPP. This course is intended to provide trainees with the essential knowledge and skills to manage construction in peacekeeping missions through practical training in the preparation of various process charts. Trainees are expected to contribute to more effective activities in the field of peacekeeping missions in the future.
