About the course:

A central concern for agencies responding in humanitarian contexts is providing effective protection for disaster-affected populations. It is no longer acceptable to focus responses on material needs without giving consideration to the safety, dignity and rights of individuals, groups and disaster-affected populations. All humanitarian actors have an ethical responsibility to incorporate protection principles into their humanitarian response programmes.

About the course:

Managing projects effectively can be challenging, even to practiced managers, and implementing effective responses to complex emergencies, in particular, requires exceptional project management skills. The project environment during emergencies can change and evolve quickly and unexpectedly, which presents additional challenges and stress to project managers. The ability to deliver quality outputs on time, even under extreme circumstances, is crucial to any humanitarian response.
