ICDO

The International Civil Defence Organisation is an intergovernmental entity with a mandate to contribute to a state’s development by providing protection and assistance of its population and safeguarding property and the environment.

We support member state national civil defence institutions and systems as well as emergency services in their efforts to prepare and respond to natural and man-made disasters. The ICDO contributes to the improvement of civil defence agencies and structures by providing technical assistance, consulting, training and access to an international network of experts specialised in the prevention and management of disasters. Looking back over the past 85 years of our history, we have a reason to be proud. Yet a lot remains to be done to overcome new risks, challenges and threats to sustainable development across the world.
