This project aims to improve the capacity of United Nations peacekeepers through large-scale e-learning programs. These self-paced e-learning courses are delivered online at regional and national peacekeeping training centers before and during deployments and directly to individual peacekeepers within Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America and South Asia. The Peace Operations Training Institute, 30 course catalogue, offers on and off-line training on the Women, Peace and Security agenda, child protection, international humanitarian law, health, sexual and gender based violence, sexual exploitation and abuse, among others, to enhance skills and knowledge of peacekeeping personnel. The Peace Operations Training Institute courses promote accessibility and address training and capability gaps identified by the United Nations.
