Kazakh peacekeepers familiarized themselves with best practices at a conference in Kenya

A delegation from the Ministry of Defense of Kazakhstan participated in the 27th conference of the International Association of Peacekeeping Training Centers (IAPTC), held in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi.

More than 300 representatives from peacekeeping training centers and international organizations from 80 countries gathered at the International Peace Support Training Center to discuss the role of partnerships in preparing peacekeepers for complex peacekeeping operations.

"Participation in the conference allowed us to familiarize ourselves with current trends and requirements in the field of peacekeeping activities and establish new contacts. With the information obtained, we will be able to timely adapt the training program for the national peacekeeping contingent," said Colonel Bauyrzhan Nigmatullin, the head of the Peacekeeping Training Center.

The event primarily aims to enhance peacekeeping capabilities, assess and develop strategic cooperation between international organizations, governments, and local authorities interested in improving the effectiveness of responses to emergencies.

It's worth noting that the International Association of Peacekeeping Training Centers was established in 1995. Through training, educational programs, and research initiatives, peacekeeping training centers worldwide have successfully prepared over 50,000 peacekeepers from 190 countries.
