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.

Introduction to Monitoring and Evaluation of Development Projects (Virtual and Onsite)

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.

Modeling For Disaster Preparedness and Response Training (Virtually and Onsite)

All countries in the world face risks emanating from natural or anthropogenic sources. Some countries have improved their response rates and thereby survival by being more organized, investing and developing sound response systems and human resources, investing in research and investing in technological innovations as a way of adapting to their environment. Despite these gains, hazards are increasingly becoming common that they threated development investments.

Monitoring and Evaluation for Development Results Training (Virtual and Onsite)

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.

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.
