The ability to handle external relations successfully has a growing impact, particularly at higher levels of management, on the ability of organizations to deliver humanitarian assistance. Students are given the knowledge and skills to respond to the various external relationships that enable humanitarian agencies to operate successfully in a competitive and often hostile environment. Through case studies, the course teaches techniques for dealing with politically motivated and highly stressed interlocutors.
Humanitarian aid professionals are confronted with ethical questions in every area of their work. This course explores these ethical questions, examines alternative ethical grounds for action, and provides humanitarian professionals with a framework for evaluating practical ethical issues that arise, especially through current and past case studies.
In order to enable humanitarian aid workers who are actively engaged in the field to attend the training program, and in an attempt to create a teaching program which reflects the complexity and intensity of the conditions humanitarian workers face, the IDHA has been designed as an intensive four-week training program, including more than 200 hours of lectures, presentations, debates, and group work. The intensity and duration of the course enables aid workers who are active in the field to attend with minimal disruption to the operations with which they are involved.

This workshop will incorporate the updated US Government regulations, as per the rule changes effective December 26, 2014.
Consistent and effective financial management is the key to receiving funding from the US Government – and also to reducing audit findings.
Organizations traditionally receiving grants and cooperative agreements (assistance) from U.S. Government agencies sometimes consider expanding into the world of contracts (acquisition) as a prime or sub-contractor. The very premise of a contract in which the U.S. Government is the buyer (acquisition) entails a stricter relationship than a grantee would usually experience in an assistance environment. The risks of non-compliance are significant and the management involvement of the U.S.
Take on the roles of mediators and conflict parties in simulations and role-plays, as you learn what it takes to structure a successful mediation effort, as well as what a third party needs to do when deciding to get involved in a peacebuilding effort.
Instructor: Pamela Aall
About the course:
Before relief work can take place, aid workers need to understand the present needs and the resources available in order to plan and respond effectively. Conducting accurate, effective and timely needs assessments is key to the preparation and planning of humanitarian projects.
Logistics activities account for a very large proportion of the costs involved in a disaster relief operation. Logisticians explore ways of minimising costs while maximising the impact of aid in order to ensure effective humanitarian response. This course aims to help you develop the competencies needed to manage field logistics in a humanitarian context.

Set amidst the context of global climate change and population growth, the number of natural and human-made emergencies every year has increased drastically in the past decade. Although floods, earthquakes, droughts, and other natural hazards cannot be prevented, their impact on communities can be limited through disaster risk reduction (DRR) practices.
Given the insecure and often rapidly changing environments in which aid agencies work, safety and security management is not an optional extra.
This five-day intensive course will enable participants to identify the key requirements for managing security in complex emergencies and conflict zones by practicing essential techniques in risk management, security assessment and crisis response.The course draws on field case studies, the current humanitarian environment and the security management practices used by humanitarian bodies internationally.
Putting together winning proposals for USAID in a competitive environment can be a complex task with very tight time frames. In addition to strong strategic program design skills, it requires internal planning, coordination and the involvement of all departments from finance to human resources to program in order to submit a quality product. Many international relief and development organizations rely on teams of staff that are not dedicated full-time to proposal writing but who need to come together quickly to meet a submission deadline.
This workshop will present new, updated regulatory information and guidance, as per the rule changes effective December 26, 2014.
This workshop focuses on the planning and practice of Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) by grounding discussions in the project lifecycle—from project concept to close-out. With a focus on the practical application of M&E for learning and improvement, participants strengthen their capacity to support M&E through participatory activities and exposure to tools and approaches that can be adapted for their current projects. Discussions on donor expectations and emerging trends help participants prepare for long-term success.
