Lieutenant Colonel Martin Sturgeon developed a programme to coordinate the dozens of international agencies responsible for recruiting and training members of the Afghan National Army (ANA) and Afghan National Police (ANP), as well as managing more than 200 infrastructure projects including the building of new police stations.

He created the programme, which has won plaudits from the head of the British Army and senior American generals, after recognising that there was no existing system for joint working in place.
