We are thrilled to announce that the Newcastle will be officially endorsed as a +United Nations city. Newcastle will be the Asia-Pacific hub for The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) for global studies into disaster risk reduction. http://bit.ly/1L2Dr1L
The United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) maintains a global network of 14 International Training Centres for Authorities and Leaders, known by their French acronym ‘CIFAL’. The network of CIFAL hubs builds capacity among government authorities and society leaders on issues of sustainable development and meeting the global goals of the UN.
A new suite of postgraduate qualifications is in development, and Associate Professor Graham Brewer, the new Director of CIFAL Newcastle, says that this will fill a substantial gap in the knowledge base of practitioners.
