Training & Tools Training Guide


In the wake of the Participation Revolution, a commitment of the 2016 Grand Bargain, there is increasing demand from government officials as well as humanitarian and project staff to develop their knowledge and skills on communication and community engagement so that communities have the ability to connect to each other and to responders, access information and have a voice in humanitarian emergencies. This enhances the effectiveness of aid; fosters greater accountability, transparency and trust; and improves the outcomes for disaster-affected people.

The CDAC Network has developed four technical training courses using experience and knowledge gained in a number of emergencies over the last four years aimed at those seeking to improve the outcomes for disaster affected people and wish to be at the forefront of the Participation Revolution. The development, piloting and roll out of these has been funded by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID).

One of these courses is an e-learning course, whilst the others are intended for participation in-person. For the latter, the CDAC Network will shortly be publishing facilitators guides with training packs, which provides all the guidance and materials required for experienced facilitators with sound knowledge of communication and community engagement to deliver the training. Please check back at the end of September 2018 for these materials.
