UNITAR is supporting the African Union activities related to strengthening the capacity of its Member States to provide effective support to implement emerging as well as classic DDR through the operationalization and dissemination of the AU Operational Guidance Notes (OGNs). UNITAR, also a member of the Inter-Agency Working Group on DDR (IAWG-DDR) and the Integrated DDR Training Group (IDDRTG), is well-positioned as a link to the main actors working on DDR, therefore connecting the work of the AU and the UN.  

This online course has been designed to introduce the content of the African Union Operational Guidance Notes on Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration.

The course is composed of three online modules, provides a baseline level of understanding of basic concepts, definitions and frameworks of the AU OGNs and includes elements from the IDDRS and other DDR standards. The online course also highlights the linkages between Early Warnings and DDR.

The three modules are:

  1. DDR and the African Union
  2. Legal and Institutional Aspects of DDR
  3. Planning and Implementing DDR

The course is available in English and French.
