CAWST, LSHTM and ACF are facilitating a capacity development workshop on hygiene programme design in emergencies.
This session will provide humanitarian WASH practitioners with the knowledge and skills to improve hygiene programme design so that its more rapid, evidence-based and context specific.
Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) plays a key role in not only promoting health among communities but also in improving the quality of life of individuals in the target communities. WASH programmes continue to face the challenge of sustainability especially in developing countries. Sustainability mechanisms focus on ensuring that the established WASH systems continue to function optimally over an extended period of time. Sustainability is multi-dimensional consisting of enabling factors, technical factors, community factors and environmental factors among others.
Over the past years, numerous initiatives have been launched to address the prevalence of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) during armed conflict, from the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 to the focus on documentation and investigation of sexual violence in war. This workshop provides an analysis of the relevant international legal frameworks aimed at preventing and responding to SGBV in conflict, including international humanitarian law (IHL), international human rights law (IHRL), international criminal law (ICL), and international refugee law.
The Core Professional Training on Humanitarian Law and Policy – an intensive three-day program – serves as an opportunity for experienced humanitarian practitioners, policymakers, and others operating in or dealing with conflict settings to deepen their understanding of international humanitarian law (IHL) and other legal frameworks applicable in times of war, and to explore related policy and operational challenges.
Le Stage d’études sur la région des Grands Lacs 2018 offre une approche régionale et thématique de la gouvernance et de la sécurité en République démocratique du Congo (RDC), au Rwanda, au Burundi et en Ouganda. Il examinera l'évolution politique de ces politiques post-conflit et analysera leur retour en arrière vers l'autoritarisme.
IIRR pioneered the writeshop methodology and has been using it to build the capacity of organizations by promoting learning and reflection. There is growing pressure on development organizations to show evidence of their works. This requires systematic documentation, packaging and dissemination, which are weakness of many development organizations. Innovating Writeshop for Documentation of Impact is given as a five-day training program by IIRR.
There are mainly two reasons that necessitate writeshops:
Globally, school children are exposed to a myriad public health risks and hazards.The situation is worse especially in developing countries and worse still in countries faced with recurrent or protracted humanitarian crises. With the newly adopted Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the global development community have renewed their commitment to sustain efforts towards providing quality education that is inclusive as articulated under SDG 4 (Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning) and the concomitant targets.
Logistics Learning Alliance is a leading provider of humanitarian based training programmes. We currently have over 1,000 students, studying in six continents and working under some of the most dangerous and challenging conditions in many of the world’s most disaster hit and war-torn countries.
Following the huge success of our Humanitarian Essentials Logistics Module (HELM) Events between 2015 and 2017, we will be returning to Nairobi in June 2018 to deliver our second Advanced Supply Chain Manager course.
ABOUT THE COURSE
The main aim of these course is to prepare humanitarian workers operating in potentially dangerous environment. They say "a dead first aider cannot save lives" and the same is true of a humanitarian
worker. That said humanitarian aid continues to be provided in an environment of uncertain security due to the nature of conflict.
The training is aimed at empowering the participants with advocacy skills so that they can be able to identify and advocate for issues that are of interest in their programmes/projects. Participants will be able to get a wider understanding of the principles, strategies and techniques of effective advocacy campaigns. Various advocacy activities that can be used in participant’s contexts will be explored. Some of these will include lobbying, flyers, newsletters, negotiations, poster campaigns, talk shows, public forums among others.
The Conflict Analysis, Management and Mediation Course aims at building capacities of practitioners working in conflict and post conflict settings in the continent so that they are better placed to make interventions that will contribute to building of more sustainable peace in their areas of operation.
This course will take participants through:
a) An overview of understanding Africa’s conflicts,
b) A dissection of various tools of analysis that can contribute to more informed and inclusive interventions,
Water is a natural resource that is multifunctional and multidimensional, threatened, source of competition and conflicts, looming and calling for integrated management.
About the course Promotion of hygiene and sanitation has traditionally been based on directives, training and guidelines targeting individuals and households .However these messages rarely led to significant improvement in hygiene behavior. The poor state of top down didactic approaches has had little impact in transforming communities to change their behaviors’ to counter this problem there is need to use participatory methods
Water Safety Plans (WSPs) provide water utilities with a riskbased, preventative approach to managing water supplies with the cooperation of other key stakeholders. Successful implementation of WSPs can improve drinking water quality, accrue operational efficiencies and provide a robust framework to better target more sustainable capital investments. Water safety plans also addresses factors that contribute to management of non-revenue water (NRW) through physical water losses in distribution systems.
Who the Training is for?
Knowing the right way forward is one thing, but achieving the rate of progress needed to meet the MDG targets is another, these calls for ways of addressing the need to provide on-going support to the many existing water and sanitation systems. There is great need to replicate success and concentrate on “scaling up” the community-management model to bring concurrent successes to many community managed programs.
More people are affected by the negative impact of poor water supply and sanitation than by war, terrorism and weapons of mass destruction combined. Investment in knowledge on water and sanitation is an efficient and effective way to combat waterborne and vector-borne diseases which are a menace in most developing countries.
CLTS is an innovative way of mobilising communities to completely eliminate open defecation (OD) where they are facilitated to conduct their own appraisal and analysis and take action to become Open Defecation Free (ODF).
The period during and after disasters signifies a time of great risk in the transmission of infectious diseases. Conditions are often unsanitary and conducive to disease outbreak. The associated risks to health are due to lack of safe drinking water, poor sanitation and hygiene practices. Early identification of appropriate, technically sound and sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) interventions is therefore critical, for a fast and effective response to disasters.
Nutrition is a key aspect in our day to day life. Sanitation related diseases affect the nutrition status of both children and adults which may consequently lead to many deaths and yet these conditions can be managed nutritionally.
Both nutrition and sanitation are both key areas that should be addressed in emergencies. One can't be managed leaving the other as they both affect each other largely.
The shared world vision for hygiene, sanitation and water supply for the new millennium recognizes hygiene conditions and adequate access to safe water and sanitation services as a fundamental right. This continues to be challenging as community WASH programmes do not adequately address hygiene promotion alongside hardware. Universal primary education in many developing countries has resulted in significant increase in schools enrolment but with inadequate facilities and little hygiene, thus affecting learning environment.
