Since 2002, the ICDO has implemented a Programme of Technical Assistance to foster the development of the national civil protection structures of its Member States.
The Organisation‘s mandate has been expanded to include the provision of emergency equipment. As part of the programme, the ICDO has invited Swiss cantons and municipalities to donate any surplus equipment that they might have to the ICDO for the benefit of its Members.
