UNITAR provides innovative learning solutions to individuals, organizations and institutions to enhance global decision-making and support country-level action for shaping a better future. With the objective of strengthening the capacities of governments and communities, in particular developing countries, for risk reduction and disaster management, UNITAR has been working on two fronts: Providing advanced technologies and applications to reduce disaster impact; and providing training opportunities for government officials in the most vulnerable regions facing disasters.
