Participants from a range of agencies with responsibility for humanitarian and disaster response both domestically and internationally took part in the intensive three-day specialist programme. The course enables closer civilian/military collaboration in emergency planning, preparedness, response and recovery.
The training, which attracted participants from the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Great Britain, was held in the United Nations Training School Ireland in the Curragh Camp in Co. Kildare.
