Australian Civil-Military Centre delivers United Nations Civil-Military course in Fiji

ACMC delivered a United Nations Humanitarian Civil Military Coordination (CM Coord) training course in Nadi, Fiji, along with key regional and global partners.

The Indo-Pacific region is regularly impacted by natural disasters, such as cyclones, earthquakes, flooding and landslides. The UN CM Coord course aims to build cross-agency coordination in preparing for, responding to and recovering from disasters.

24 representatives from 15 Indo-Pacific police forces, militaries, disaster management agencies and NGOs attended the week-long course, which was conducted with key partners: the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA), the Centre for Excellence in Disaster Management and Humanitarian Assistance (CFE-DMHA) and the Fiji National Disaster Management Office (NDMO).

ACMC delivers capacity building and outreach in the Indo-Pacific region, working closely with local police, military and disaster management agencies.
