Safety and Security

Supply of military equipment for training the trainers of Somali National Army in cooperation with EU Training Mission in Somalia


The objective of the assistance measure is to strengthen the capacity of the Somali National Army to be trained at the General Dhagabadan training centre, to restore safety and security in the country and protect the civilian population. Through this assistance measure, the EU will provide equipment that will be used solely for training Somali National Army personnel in conjunction with EU Training Mission in Somalia and in full respect of relevant international law, in particular international human rights law and international humanitarian law.


This capacity-building support through the EU Training Mission in Somalia is coupled and synchronised with the €109 million of equipment and supplies delivered to the Somali National Army since 2019, and remains essential for Somalia to be in better control of its security.
