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. The aim of these workshops is to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the international coordination system for large-scale emergencies and help participants identify where they can take action and engage directly within the system through a coordinated response. 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 Building a Better Response project aims to provide training to strengthen the capacity of humanitarian actors to engage with the international humanitarian coordination system, including during complex humanitarian emergencies, and by doing so, improve coordination and response to the needs of affected populations. Funded by the US Agency for International Development, Office of US Foreign Disaster Assistance, the project is being implemented through a consortium that brings together a combination of operational and technical expertise, spearheaded by International Medical Corps in collaboration with Concern Worldwide and the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative.
In order to strengthen the capacity of NGO personnel to coordinate with humanitarian systems in a manner that improves overall response to the needs of affected populations, the BBR project is implementing a series of workshops for NGO staff. The aim of these workshops is to provide participants with an in-depth understanding of the international coordination system for large-scale emergencies and help participants identify where they can take action and engage directly within the system. During the workshop, case studies, interactive activities, and group dialogues are used to enhance the knowledge gained from the e-learning.
