The EU Capacity Building Mission in Mali (EUCAP Sahel Mali) was initiated on 15 April 2014 within the European Union Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP) as a Capacity Building Mission in order to train local security forces in Mali.
EUCAP Sahel Mali provides assistance and advice to the national police, the national gendarmerie and the national guard. This is done by improving the operational efficiency, re-establishing the respective hierarchical chains, reinforcing the role of judicial and administrative authorities, and facilitating the redeployment to the north of the country.
There are currently 20 police forces and 63 civilian staff deployed within this mission.
