CWS-P/A is organizing a 5 day multi-agency course titled “Enhancing Quality and Accountability throughout Project Cycle Management” in humanitarian action and non-emergency with entry points to technical sectors such as Water, Food, Shelter, Health, Education, Child Protection, Livestock and Livelihoods, Markets and Financial Systems etc. on January 19th – 23rd, 2015 in Bangkok, Thailand.
This course is a unique opportunity for all agencies, as it is focusing comprehensively on Joint Standards and is being promoted for the third time in the region. It aims to gather professional humanitarian workers from INGOs, NGOs, UN, donors, universities and government agencies from around the world who are leaders in promoting and implementing approaches for enhanced quality and accountability (Q&A). It will also allow individuals to understand the significance of linkages between various standards and assist agencies in collaborating and coordinating with various actors towards a common goal.
The methodology will be very participatory, allowing participants to be involved in a dynamic way at all times through presentations, debates, experience sharing, group work, learning pairs, writing workshops, design of proposals and recommendations, etc. The course will be conducted in English – Sylvie Robert has designed this course and would be the main facilitator, with Rizwan Iqbal, co-facilitator from CWS-P/A.
