The Integrated DDR Training Group (IDDRTG) is composed by international organizations and training institutes with a common goal of developing and sharing training materials based on the United Nations Integrated Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Standards (UN IDDRS).
IDDRTG develops training for DDR practitioners both from international and regional organizations, military, police and NGOs etc. The aim is to provide an integrated approach to the DDR with focus on planning, management and implementation of the process, using the IDDRS as guidance to ensure well trained personnel.
The Secretary-General states in its report on Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration to the United Nations General Assembly issued on 21 March 2011 (A/65/741):
57. (…) “The United Nations is working with the Integrated Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Training Group, which comprises Member State training institutions and other partners who train personnel on the United Nations approach to disarmament, demobilization and reintegration, as encompassed in the Integrated Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Standards. The Secretary-General calls on relevant Member States to continue to support the Integrated Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Training Group.”
United Nations Inter-Agency Working Group on DDR is a strategic partner of the IDDRTG. For more information please visit Members.
