International Crisis Management – Seminar for Saudi Arabia’s diplomats

 

The Institute of Diplomatic Studies of Saudi Arabia requested that UNITAR develop a seminar on International Crisis Management for officers from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia.
 
In the seminar, which started last week in Geneva, Switzerland, UNITAR is partnering with staff from International Telecommunication Union (ITU), International Labour Organization (ILO),  UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs(OCHA),  UN Development Programme (UNDP), UNITAR Operational Satellite Applications Programme (UNOSAT), World Health Organization (WHO), and World Meteorological Organization (WMO) to present the latest crisis recovery tools and developments in the field of human security, humanitarian response, satellite applications, cybersecurity, health, and migration. The participants also learned communication strategies applied by crisis managers and discussed challenges for multilateral diplomats to the United Nations when covering crisis situations.
