The UN system, its Member States, as well as other key partners, all face an array of complex and interrelated challenges to global peace. Overall, the increasingly pervasive impact of many contemporary conflicts and their intractability make focusing on prevention a priority for the international community as a whole.

About the course
Effective responses to complex emergencies require exceptional management skills. Managing people and projects can be difficult at the best of times, but being able to deliver quality outputs on time and under pressure is even more crucial during the chaos and stress of a complex emergency.
In the last decade, maintaining peace and security has become further complicated by an increase in the violence perpetrated no longer exclusively by national armies and armed oppositions but also by an increasingly assertive and brutal range of hybrid actors, such as illegal armed groups, criminal organizations, and transnational networks of illicit trafficking. The impact is so significant that the violence resulting from these situations exceeds many on-going civil wars.

ABOUT THE COURSE
Aid agencies in recent urban emergencies have often lacked the ability to respond effectively in these environments. The urban context is much more complex than many rural or camp-focused emergencies, requiring specialist technical support to make immediate repairs to infrastructure that aid agencies don’t have the capacity to offer.
Disasters have devastating consequences. They cause deaths, the destruction of property and infrastructure, mass displacement, social and economic disruption and damage to the environment. Although floods, earthquakes, typhoons and other natural hazards can’t be prevented, their impact on communities can be limited through Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) practices.
This course introduces the basics of humanitarian community shelter and settlements (S&S) activities, including some history and trends related to the sector, best practices in assessments and programming strategy, basic shelter responses, the relationship between shelter and its context (settlements), and how to promote the recovery of affected settlements. This training course is based on many years of USAID/OFDA and humanitarian organization experience in S&S activities, so discussions and case studies are based on real-life situations.
