Tajik Border Officers Graduate OSCE Course on Operational Planning


Twenty officers of the Tajik Border Troops completed the training course on operational planning on 5 May 2023 in Dushanbe. The OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe (OSCE) organized the course in cooperation with the Tajik Border Troops. The training course was conducted in the framework of OSCE’s project Patrol Field Capacity Building of the Tajik Border Troops through Promotion of Regional Co-operation – Phase II, financed by the Republic of France.

During a three-week course, participants learned seven steps of the operational planning process. The training included classroom instructions introducing the concepts of operational planning followed by practical exercises. The students applied the learned concepts to a realistic planning scenario related to dealing with security and humanitarian issues on the Tajikistan-Afghanistan border. Gender-sensitive border security operations, human rights and humanitarian law and the Google Earth geospatial analysis software were also the focus of the training course.

Two International instructors from Bosnia and Herzegovina and Romania as well as two national experts from the Tajik Border Troops with expertise in operational planning conducted the course.
