basic2-256_presentation_teaching-512 The gift that keeps giving: Eleven ways to extend the reach of capacity building projects for sector wide performance improvement

In this interactive session the presenters will share a case study and lessons from the PARCEL Project; a 2 year consortium project developing materials for international NGOs to use for building the capacity of local partner organisations in humanitarian logistics. The project with co-financing from ECHO and a consortium of ten International NGOs resulted in a series of free products available to the sector, including: a set of logistics standards for INGOs and their partners to work towards, an assessment tool to jointly measure adherence to these standards, a complete set of pick-up-and-go training packages—blended learning materials—to address potential capacity gaps, including a Training of Trainers package, and finally a toolkit for partner organisation to use for their logistics systems and processes. These packages were pilot tested and implemented with partners working in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. Post project, materials have been downloaded hundreds of time, and consortium members are frequently contacted by new organisations who are starting to use the products. The long-term implications of this project can result in hundreds of thousands of dollars saved through the elimination of duplication of training materials design and development efforts for new organisations who are able to pick up these materials and go!

session Capacity building that blends impact with revenue generation

Program development solicitations are increasingly requesting more concrete interventions of exit strategies.  The exit strategies are essential to ensure that from the outset the program will build in the economics that will guarantee sustainability once donor support is no longer available.  In order to respond to this growing demand, the type of capacity building an organization is currently using may need to be slightly modified.  This session gives some examples of how an organization will be able to reach large percentages of vulnerable populations with new and innovative knowledge ensuring that the intervention will be sustained once the support is withdrawn. This is accomplished through building capacity in stakeholders through entrepreneurship and business principles and linking those trained to the larger target population.

basic2-256_presentation_teaching-512 5 years of Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) Capacity Development in ActionAid Federation – lessons from the framework and blended learning methods

This session will offer a replicable holistic framework for HRBA capacity building support that includes blended learning methods. Attendees will gain insights from our experience of using an organisational development approach to capacity building and institutionalising a programmatic area (HRBA) and enablers that existed/exist for this to happen. This will include a focus on human resource, organisational structures, culture and symbols, leadership and governance commitment, resource allocation, processes, rewards and systems put in place to support this organisational change.

basic2-256_presentation_teaching-512 Local Capacity Building in the Context of Humanitarian Crisis in Syria:  Lessons, Tools, and Partnership Models

During this session you will be presented with a case study of capacity building in a crisis zone using sector-developed credential (PMD Pro), and online, classroom and blended learning adapted to an ever-changing situation. There will be an exploration of the development of partnerships between international eNGOs, local NGOs, global multi-national firms, and local service providers to support affordable, accessible, and appropriate capacity building. Discussions will look at sustainable business models for ongoing local capacity in a broader context, identifying opportunities for application of the model to situations in other regions.
