EUTM Mali aims to contribute to the restoration of the Malian military. This activity will support the MaAF to conduct military operations designed to restore Malian territorial integrity and reduce the threat posed by terrorist groups. The activity is responding to the operational needs of the MaAF through the provision of:
- Training and advice on command and control, logistical chain and human resources, as well as training on International Humanitarian Law, protections of civilians and human rights.
- Training support for the benefit of the MaAF.
- A contribution, upon Malian request and in coordination with MINUSMA, to the Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration process framed by the Peace Agreement, through the provision of training sessions in order to facilitate the reconstruction of inclusive Malian Armed Forces.
- Support to the G5 Sahel process, within the activities of EUTM Mali in support of the MaAF, by contributing to enhancing coordination and interoperability within the G5 Sahel national armed forces.
EUTM Mali provides advice at both the strategic and regional level to the Ministry of Defence, MaAF and to military headquarters to support the implementation of structural reforms outlined in the Defence Programming Law. French-speaking, multi-disciplinary, military advisors share their experience and expertise with their Malian counterparts in the domains of human resources management, logistics, intelligence, conduct of operations, information systems, finances and planning.
