International Training Programme – Disaster Risk Management

Managing and reducing disaster risk is central for saving lives, assets, livelihoods and sustainable development. The programme targets disaster risk management stakeholders involved in change processes at various levels.

The aim of the International Training Programme for Disaster Risk Management, ITP DRM for short, is to strengthen the capacity of individuals and their organisations to manage disaster risks. Participating organisations will, upon completion of the program, have individuals with strengthened capacities in key positions to lead organisational change for enhanced disaster risk management performance.

Gender, diversity and environment are core thematic areas for MSB as it is essential for sustainable development and thus also integrated throughout the ITP DRM.

By inviting organisations from different sectors, the participants are given the opportunity to improve and expand their networks with other actors and stakeholders in disaster risk management.
