Global Peace Operations Initiative: Background and Issues for Congress
Nina M. Serafino (au)
In its May 2009 budget request for FY2010, the Obama Admin. has requested $96.8 million for the Global Peace Operations Initiative (GPOI). GPOI was established in mid-2004 as a 5-year program with intended annual funding to total $660 million from FY2005 throughFY2009. (Actual funds allocated to the GPOI program from FY2005 through FY2009 totaled, as of April 2009, some $480.4 million.) The centerpiece of the Bush Admin.’s efforts to prepare foreign security forces to participate in international peacekeeping operations, GPOI’sprimary purpose has been to train and equip 75,000 military troops, a majority of them African, for peacekeeping operations by 2010. In Oct. 2008, the Nat. Security Council’s Deputies Comm. approved a 5-year renewal of GPOI’s mandate. Congressional approval of the FY2010 budget request would provide funding for the first year of this extension.
