The Building a Better Response (BBR) project is offering a series of 3-day remote learning workshops to strengthen the capacity of NGO personnel engaging in the international humanitarian coordination system during complex emergencies.

These workshops will enhance the knowledge gained from the Building a Better Response E-Learning Course (www.buildingabetterresponse.org), which participants are required to complete before attending the workshops.
Through case studies, interactive activities, and group dialogues, participants will gain an understanding on topics such as humanitarian principles and standards, country-level leadership, and humanitarian programming cycle and financing will be addressed as they relate to coordination.
The target audience for this workshop is staff working in the East Africa region specifically in Burundi, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Madagascar, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda from local, national, or international NGOs, who are engaged in humanitarian response, have elements of humanitarian coordination included in their job responsibilities, and who are committed to promoting coordination within their organizations.

Staff who are regularly deployed on emergency response teams
HQ or field staff who are assigned to actively engage within clusters
