Promotes and finances research programmes. Organizes group workshops, structured briefings and self-directed learning. Building on DMTP's strengths, Phase II will make distinct contributions which establish a common framework and set of expectations and standards, including: consolidating and building on gains made in countries having benefitted from DMTP's strategic planning and training model and extending the approach to disaster-prone countries, such as those of the Commonwealth of Independent States; expanding follow-up to ensure satisfactory implementation of recommendations to enhance national capacity, focusing on mitigation and preparedness improvements; providing follow-up which ensures satisfactory transition to other funding and implementing collaborators; further integrating disaster/emergency management programmes on UN agencies and concerned NGOs into the DMTP process, becoming a central point of reference for disaster/emergency training within the UN System; increasing field coordination by focusing in particular on strengthening UN and national disaster management teams; continuing expansion and making accessible high-quality training materials that focus equally on man-made and natural disasters and integrating material on environmental concerns, human rights, peace-keeping and peace-making.
