||Capacity building is one of the core activities carried out by UNU-EHS. There are three main avenues for delivering capacity building: through academic activities, training programmes, and project-based activities to develop capacities of institutions.
||UNU-EHS and its projects reflect the overall mission of UNU: “Advancing Knowledge for Human Security and Development”. Following the mission, UNU-EHS spearheads research and capacity building activities of UNU in the broad interdisciplinary
field of ‘risk and vulnerability’, which is also reflected in the projects of UNU-EHS.
