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.
IDDRTG would like to issue a warm welcome to Swedish Armed Forces International Centre (SWEDINT) that joined the Group at the Annual General Meeting in Geneva in May 2015. For more information about SWEDINT please visit Members
