How much
does it cost?

The GICHD tries to make its services as accessible as possible, offering them at no charge or at greatly reduced cost. Such subsidies, however, are subject to ongoing availability of funding, timing and specific needs.

Costs incurred by the GICHD are generally covered by the Centre, and include expense items such as trainers or advisers’ fees, airfare and accommodation and training material. Extensive training packages are expensive and therefore, in certain circumstances, the Centre may ask the requesting agency to cover some or all of the costs.
