Child Protection in Emergencies Training (Virtual and Onsite)

Children, unlike adults, are affected uniquely by conflicts and emergencies, however; they could facilitate quick and lasting recovery of the community. Children find themselves in vulnerable situations during emergencies and bear the greatest brunt of disasters because of their vulnerability. As such, these children are exposed to displacement, separation, discrimination, forced labor, sexual and economic exploitation, trafficking and conflicts.  Child protection measures have to be undertaken from the onset of an emergency to ensure their wellbeing is guarded. To achieve this, professionals working with children have a duty to prevent violence and abuse and to enable children to access protection services through government and community systems.

GIS application in Project Monitoring and Evaluation Training (Virtual and Onsite)

The integration of GIS in monitoring and Evaluation makes it possible to link, or integrate information that is difficult to associate through any other means. With GIS M&E/Researchers are able to use combinations of mapped variables to build and analyze new variables. Presenting data in the form of a map helps to understand the significance of where, when, and by whom. By using the GIS to link data from multiple programs the training will make it possible to understand the individual programs better but also better understand the relationship between the programs. Spatial analysis techniques will also help with driving outcomes measures.

Gender and Climate Change Training (Virtual and Onsite)

There is little knowledge on where gender and climate change intersect. One of the major challenges of governments, local and international organizations in addressing inequality between genders over the course of time has been the continued isolation of this phenomenon from other similar efforts and lack of experience. This is cemented by a 2006 UN survey of environmental ministries, in which governments cited lack of understanding of the gender and environment topic, and specifically on the relationship between gender and climate change, as a reason for not incorporating gender into their work. It is based on this understanding that there is a need to develop a common understanding of the linkages between gender and climate change, using a language that policymakers and climate scientists can understand among development and environmental institutions, and in the climate change arena in general. This would benefit the climate change arena in the coordination of collaborative efforts across sectors and institutions, and also in the increment of capacity and political commitment amongst governments, policymakers, the UN system, civil society, and the women’s movement.
