Event Details

What is the training about?

Organizations adopt and apply numerous Quality and Accountability (Q&A) standards such as the Sphere Standards, Core Humanitarian Standard, etc. It is essential to continue to promote and apply the use of these standards to ensure aid organisations deliver effective service to the affected population while holding the utmost integrity. The process of systematically adopting and adapting these standards can be overwhelming for some given their own competing priorities or the lack of technical expertise to ensure Q&A is mainstreamed in the whole organisation both in policies and practices.

The Q&A Mainstreaming training will offer insights and tools on how organisations could embark on a mainstreaming journey. For organisations that are already promoting and applying Q&A, the training will offer a platform to discuss some of the challenges and pitfalls of Q&A mainstreaming process.

By end of the training participants are expected to have:

  • Assessed Q&A mainstreaming process in their respective organisations
  • Understood the steps and process of Q&A mainstreaming
  • Shared experience of challenges and successes of Q&A mainstreaming process
  • Shared experiences of impact of Q&A mainstreaming process
  • Familiarized with some of the tools for mainstreaming

Who should Apply?

We welcome participants who are interested in Q&A mainstreaming as well as those who are already promoting and applying Q&A organisation-wide for cross sharing and learning purposes. Specifically the following participants will benefit from the training:

  • Accountability staff
  • MEAL staff
  • Programme staff
  • Management staff
  • Support services (HR, etc)

We recommend a combination of the above with at least two participants from each organization.
