Certificate of Advanced Studies – Designing Strategies and Projects for Humanitarian Action
The difficulties facing humanitarian actors are growing as crises become more complex and uncertainties more numerous. This course teaches how to confront many of these new challenges, focusing on how to develop appropriate intervention strategies.
Decision-making before and during the implementation of a humanitarian project requires, simultaneously, an understanding of the wider project-context, and awareness of detailed project specifics. To manage this situation requires appropriate risk-assessment and the skill to identify, and act upon, priorities. This course provides a range of methods, techniques and tools for successful project design and implementation, adapted to different contexts.
What you can expect from this course
If you are engaged in developing humanitarian intervention strategies and/or managing programmes or projects, this course will enable you to sharpen your understanding and will offer methods and tools you can apply in decision-making and subsequent monitoring.
If you are a project coordinator working outside the humanitarian sector, the course will enable you to familiarise yourself with the specificities of humanitarian practice and the different elements to be taken into consideration.
