International Jungle Warfare Symposium

Brazil’s Amazon Military Command (CMA - Comando Militar de Amazonia) confronts an immense task in its Area of Responsibility (see separate post Strong Arm, Friendly Hand). Part of the expertise it has developed in order to fulfil these responsibilities revolves around the Centro Instrucao de Guerre na Selva (CIGS - Jungle Warfare Training School), an institution now celebrating its fiftieth anniversary and one that has established itself as one of the preeminent training facilities for jungle warfare.

Not all participants in the symposium will necessarily be personally introduced to CMA’s mascot.
Brazil takes its international involvement seriously, as evidenced by the number of international operations to which its troops contribute and the extent to which multinational training takes place with its immediate and more distant neighbours.

As part of its continued programme of outreach, CMA will host the first ever Jungle Operations International Symposium later this year. Taking place in Manaus, Amazonia (headquarters of CMA) from 17th-18th November 2015, the symposium – which will be conducted in both Portuguese and English – will leverage the considerable experience Brazil has developed in jungle operations over the last half century.

Interested parties can obtain further information and request joining instructions here – and should prepare to be impressed!
