An international training institute for peace-keepers will be setup in Ethiopia by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in collaboration with the Ethiopian government. The institute will serve as a training facility for peace-keeping organizations within and around East Africa.
The centre will equip peace-keepers and institutions with advanced skills in conflict analysis (applied research), training design, and for peace-building interventions. The Government of Japan will give $14.77million for the establishment of the institute.
An agreement for the institute is expected to be signed between the UNDP and the Ethiopian government.
