What is the training about?
Projects at grass root level need particular skills to ensure that they do not create any conflict in the communities that they work with and do not harm their interests in anyway. Efficient and transparent transfer of resources and effective project implementation by staff can strengthen local capacities for peace, create connectors that bring communities together, and reduce the divisions and sources of tensions that can lead to destructive conflict. Therefore, this four-day training will focus on applying the basic principles of quality and accountability (Q&A) including the ‘do no harm’ approach to project management. This is not a training on the project cycle management. The purpose of training is to coach participants to apply concepts of quality and accountability and ‘do no harm’ approach throughout the different stages of project management using project cycle just as a framework. This will ensure greater accountability towards project participants/affected populations and ensure their interventions do not cause any divisions or conflict in the community they work with.
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Identify key Q&A initiatives and their tools
- Select and adapt existing Q&A tools and resources to overcome challenges unique to your context and the specific sector(s) in which you work
- Outline the opportunities and challenges faced by humanitarian workers in implementing Q&A approaches and tools throughout the project
Who is it for?
This training is specifically designed for staff working at field level or directly engaged in project planning and implementation. Staff members from local level organization representing NGOs, CBOs field office staff of INGOs, UN agencies, universities and government agencies are welcome to apply. Participants to the course will be individuals having specific responsibilities linked to quality and accountability, monitoring and evaluation, involvement in project/program planning, management and implementation.
