Our approach

Our systemic approach starts from assessment and mapping of capacities of the CSOs, followed by developing appropriate training modules, developing a pool of resources and trainers, conducting consultation with communities, gathering evidence, and ends with national-level consultation. National Alliance of Humanitarian Actors (NAHAB) is our strategic partner to carry out this process.

Expected results

100 members from 50 CSOs will receive training on disaster risk reduction and preparedness, inclusive disaster response management, climate change actions, and leadership. They will then share their experience with district-level and national-level actors through multi-stakeholder consultations.
