This report summarizes an online four-day Training of Trainers (ToT) session in June that aimed to build capacity of border officials to address disaster displacement situations. The ToT is the 2nd phase of training which follows the first virtual delivery to border officials across the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States and the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) in June 2020.
The training was organized in response to feedback from participants after the 1st phase of the programme. It therefore sought to address concerns raised by participants, such as the duration of sessions and a need for coverage of specialized content. Moreover, the ToT specifically addresses a request from participants that a training of trainers be incorporated in future sessions.
The delivery of the ToT therefore also seeks to address sustainability of the training of border officials to address disaster displacement, and is therefore intended to support future delivery of national training throughout the Caribbean.
