West Africa
In West Africa our efforts are focused on building the Multi National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) capability and capacities of MNJTF contributing countries: Chad, Niger, Cameroon, Nigeria and Benin; providing enablers to assist Lake Chad Basin countries to contain and degrade Boko Haram; and training, advising, and equipping Nigerian armed forces to secure their own territory and deny Violent Extremist Organizations (VEOs) safe havens.
