Disarmament, Demobilisation and Reintegration Planning Course (DDR Planning)

The aim of this course is to create a new generation of planners in peace building processes who understand the role of the different actors involved in such processes, and who appreciates the importance of co-operation and co-ordination during planning exercises, of carrying out planning jointly and of starting the planning early.

DDR programmes and operations are more likely to be successful when the various actors supporting national DDR efforts have the necessary knowledge and skills for carrying out the required planning. The DDR Planning Course aims to develop the necessary knowledge and skills through the practical application of the planning guidance provided by the United Nations Integrated Disarmament Demobilisation and Reintegration Standards (IDDRS).

The DDR Planning course will bring together DDR policy and programme practitioners who are or will be involved in planning DDR programmes and operations through the United Nations, regional organisations, national governments, military and police, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and civil society organisations (CSOs).

It will provide practitioners with the necessary knowledge and skills to be able to effectively respond to the conditions, risks and opportunities that arise when planning large-scale, complex DDR programmes and operations.

The DDR Planning course is aimed at senior managers, programme managers, and gender/HIV focal points, as well as representatives from UN and National DDR Commissions, governments, militaries, sub-regional bodies, and donors.
