E-learning tool on Including migrants in emergency management: launch of the Italian version

After the release of the English and Spanish versions of the e-learning tool on Including migrants in emergency management, the ICC and the IOM are pleased to announce the launch of the Italian version.

In our increasingly diverse communities, natural/technological disasters and other emergencies are ever more likely to affect migrants and foreign nationals alongside native residents. At the same time, empowering migrants to contribute to risks and emergency management together with native residents can increase the impact of positive and timely response in critical situations.

To this end, the UN’s International Organisation for Migration (IOM), in collaboration with the Intercultural Cities Programme (ICC) and EUR-OPA Major Hazards Agreement of the Council of Europe, developed an online course to help practitioners at local level including migrants in emergency management.

Through a series of thematic modules, the course explores how language proficiency, administrative barriers, mistrust towards the authorities and other cultural and social factor may affect migrants’ access to assistance in emergencies, and how these barriers can be addressed through approaches that leverage all available capacities to reduce risk.

The course is available in English, Spanish and Italian, for free and upon registration on IOM’s e-learning platform.
