International recognition and engagement with UN missions & agencies

Established to provide core, advanced and executive leadership training for UN missions and staff, government leadership and officials, and national and international organisations and agencies working in the fields of peacebuilding, prevention, and post-war recovery and peace consolidation, IPDTC has provided trainings for more than 4000 practitioners, policy makers and professionals from over 70 countries around the world. More than 90% of IPDTC trainings are provide in the field-world-wide upon request from UN missions and agencies, national governments, and national and international organisations and agencies. Each of these programmes is tailor-made and customised for the exact needs, objectives and context of the requesting mission or agency – designed drawing upon a decade and a half of global experience to maximize practical impact and support missions in best achieving their mandate and objectives.

“Your training was the best I’ve ever been through. Your ability to customize your programme for our mission’s needs, making it highly practical and context-specific while drawing upon an incredible breadth of on-the-ground experience, real examples, practical simulations, and tools that can be used in the field made it the perfect programme for our mission.”
