The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) organized a training course on Imposters & Documents (ID) to 15 officers and non-commissioned officers from the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) at the Araman military base in northern Lebanon from 6 to 8 March 2018.

The training was facilitated jointly by ICMPD and LAF trainers who have been trained by the Netherlands-funded component within the framework of the Enhanced Capability For Integrated Border Management in Lebanon (IBM Lebanon), funded by the European Union.

The training sessions were very successful in terms of continuing the delivery of operational border management skills to the LAF.

The participation of LAF as trainers reflects the successful continued handover of ownership of such training using trainers trained, equipped and using standardised, tailor-made training material provided by Netherlands-funded component.
