Child Protection in Emergencies Training

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.

Community Based Climate Change Adaptation & Resilience

Climate change (CC) threatens progress on development particularly in developing countries because they have the least capacity to cope. Adaptation to climate change in these countries is therefore critical. These adjustments in response to the negative impacts of climate change are necessary as they are locally focused and inexpensive. Adaptation efforts based at the local level address exposure of vulnerable recipients to the adverse impacts of climate change. Community-based climate change adaptation identifies and facilitates local development activities that strengthen the capacity of local people to adapt to the capricious climate. This approach employs participatory processes and disaster risk reduction.

Introduction to Monitoring and Evaluation of Development Projects

Monitoring and evaluation is a concept and practice through which organizations evaluate where they are, where they are going, how they will get there and basically what needs to be done to achieve preset objectives. The practice enables organizations to understand what they need to do, ultimately understand if they achieved the same and if they didn’t, evaluate what could have been done to improve results of rolled out projects. This five day’s training serves as a guide and introduction to development practitioners primarily those involved continuously in project implementation on how to monitor and evaluate projects and programmes in an effort to achieve objectives and also help beneficiary communities in improving their livelihoods.

Monitoring and Evaluation 4 Development Results; Humanitarian Assistance Projects Training

Why do governments, NGOs, Foundations, CBOS and other organizations roll out projects and programmes in different sectors? It is because they want to make an impact in the lives of the target audiences/ beneficiaries through thoroughly thought out series of actions whose end result is improved livelihoods and quality of life. How do they ensure they meet this objective? This is done through effective monitoring of these programmes so as to ensure that they are still on course and if they aren’t, take actions that take the projects back on track. This training aims to enlighten the participant on the entire process of monitoring of projects and evaluating them to ensure that the intended development related results are continuously achieved.
