draw-down
 n.— «The mission’s boss further stated that the draw-down of the troops would be done in three phases beginning December 2008 to December 2010. He said that the draw-down in its troop doesn’t mean that they are in a hurry to leave, but Liberians should understand that UNMIL will not stay in Liberia forever.» —“Unmil to Draw Down Troops 2008″ by Melissa Chea-Annan The Inquirer (Monrovia, Liberia) Aug. 16, 2007.
