The focus on traditional security actors such as the police, the military, the judiciary, prison personnel, border guards, and intelligence has been complemented by a more comprehensive view on human security, bringing the basic needs and physical, social and economic security and safety of individuals and the population to the centre of attention.
The REACT course is a six-week training programme on international peace operations intended for professionals interested in improving their knowledge of conflict prevention, crisis management and post-conflict rehabilitation, as well as to develop practical skills for their work in the field.

Effective humanitarian civil‐military coordination (UN‐CMCoord) requires an understanding of humanitarian action and the overall operational context, as well as the military’s roles and responsibilities, organizational structure, culture and liaison approaches. OCHA’s Policy Instruction on OCHA’s role and responsibilities in humanitarian civil‐military coordination (UN‐CMCoord) highlights this. Towards this end, sensitisation and training are amongst the key tasks OCHA carries out in support of UN‐CMCoord in the preparedness and response phases.
