We’re building a new UNITAR.org.

As we swap out old for new, pages will be in transition. Thanks for your patience – please keep coming back to see the improvements.

Tailor-made Training 

We offer basic and advanced courses on the use and applications of Geospatial Information Technology (GIT) for disaster risk management. Courses are delivered face-to-face either in situ or at the headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland, and can be customised to needs


Training methodology

We focus on a highly interactive hands-on learning by doing approach using case studies derived from recent disasters and conflicts. The training is also comprised of theoretical lectures, round table discussions and field visits.


Our target audience

Our courses are designed for professionals from governments, regional and international organizations including the United Nations who wish to strengthen their practical skills in the use of Geospatial Information Technology (GIT) for disaster risk management. 


GIS software and license grant

We deliver our courses using the latest ArcGIS software provided by UNOSAT.

At the end of the course, participants are awarded a 1 year ArcGIS license from ESRI to support the application of the knowledge and skills gained from the course to their work.
