Training & Partnerships

The Training and Partnership Unit (TPU) establishes partnerships with various organisations around the world, which allows OCHA to deliver and sustain its UN-CMCoord Training Programme catering to the training needs of its beneficiaries within the humanitarian and military communities.

The core UN-CMCoord training products - the UN-CMCoord Course, the UN-CMCoord Field Course, the UN-CMCoord Training of Trainers (ToT) Course and the UN-CMCoord Familiarisation Course - are the medium by which training beneficiaries are familiarised with the humanitarian civil-military coordination concept and principles and its practical applications in the field, including how the UN-CMCoord function supports the existing humanitarian architecture.
The overarching philosophy of UN-CMCoord Courses is that participants should reflect the diversity of actors in the field within the humanitarian and military communities. Applications are encouraged from:
  • Governmental and non-governmental organizations;
  • Aid agencies and civil protection units;
  • Military and civil defence organizations;
  • United Nations agencies and other intergovernmental bodies; and,
  • The Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.
