CaLP Response Analysis Training (One-day) in Nairobi, Kenya

18th May 2017

CaLP will organize a one-day training on Response Analysis. The objective of this training is to enhance the capacity of humanitarian practitioners to support response analysis and its institutionalization within their agencies.

The sessions will focus on a discussion of the information requirements for response options analysis and will engage participants in practical exercises.  The training is designed to strengthen participants understanding of:

  • The information needed to evaluate the appropriateness, feasibility, effectiveness, efficiency, and risks related to different response modalities (cash, vouchers, in-kind assistance, market support) and different mechanisms (local/regional/international procurement, electronic/paper, mobile/card, financial service provider, etc.)
  • Comparing and ranking the different modalities and delivery mechanisms options

This one-day course is suitable for humanitarian workers involved in program design, proposal development, logframe development, development of theories of change, and decisions regarding program direction. This may include management country directors, assistant country directors, heads of base, and program managers at various levels.

It is equally relevant for those engaged in designing interventions in particular sectors or programs that operate across sectors, including advisory roles, management of MEAL, and program quality team members. Similarly, those engaged in operational roles, including but not limited to logistics, finance, and other departments that support implementation and decisions around program feasibility may benefit from attendance.

Applicants should have:

  • Knowledge of programme development/proposal development processes within their own agency
  • Previous work on humanitarian programs that use cash, vouchers, and/or in-kind assistance
  • Understanding of how markets operate and support humanitarian responses and recovery
  • Familiarity with the vocabulary used to describe modalities and mechanisms of assistance 
  • A role that supports and contributes to situation and response analysis, response options analysis, or similar processes within their own agency

  • If required, applicants should get approval from their manager before applying for this course.
